Elmiron Vision Damage Can Be Avoided By Changing Diet and Lifestyle

It may be more beneficial to have made lifestyle changes than to take a doctor's recommendation to go on Elmiron

Wednesday, August 11, 2021 - Hundreds and maybe thousands of women that have taken Elmiron face the prospect of developing macular degeneration later in life. Elmiron leaves a unique signature of spots on the retina in the back of the eye. The retina is responsible for central vision and keeping it working optimally is key to having perfect vision. Study after study has shown that Elmiron causes spots to develop over time causing night blindness. Women with Elmiron macular degeneration report having difficulty seeing and especially driving at night, and also can not read unless the lighting is optimal. Women with Elmiron vision damage sometimes can not function normally in their jobs or their role as spouse and mother. Elmiron vision damages for which one may seek to be compensated include loss of wages past and future, past and future medical expenses including ophthalmologists consultations, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium. Loss of consortium includes the loss of affection or companionship directly caused by the seriousness of Elmiron vision loss. Women who have filed Elmiron vision damage lawsuits tell their attorneys that they would never have taken the drug had they known of the potential for causing blindness. Instead, they would have looked to change their diet or lifestyle to treat their chronic bladder pain. Doctors recommend, in general, that women try and eat a more balanced diet full of fruits, vegetables, and legumes, and stay away from alcohol, coffee, tea, or other caffeinated beverages that would cause pain to a more sensitive bladder.

Money Talks News lists a few things women can do today to care for or improve their vision. A woman can begin treating or preventing macular degeneration without using toxic medicines like Elmiron today by eating as described above. Also, keeping one's general eyesight health in mind and avoid other harmful habits can help keep eyesight at its sharpest. One should avoid rubbing the eyes when itchy or irritated as to do so introduces bacteria which can lead to infection and damage vision. Limit the time spent using a smartphone to less than one hour per day. According to MTN, "Staring too much at a smartphone without taking breaks can lead to issues such as dry eyes and blurred vision. Some research even suggests that too much screen time can lead to age-related macular degeneration." Wearing sunglasses is also critical. Eye protection not only protects against ultraviolet radiation but also keeps wind, dirt, and dust out of the eyes. Avoid cigarette smoking because tobacco smoke is a known carcinogen, and getting it into the eyes could lead to eye infection or disease. Finally, women should avoid using eyeliner and eye shadow. The chemicals in makeup products are not required to be FDA tested before being sold, and some contain talc and asbestos, a known carcinogen. Women with Elimron-induced macular degeneration are speaking with Elmiron vision damage lawyers and filing claims for lump-sum monetary compensation.
