Elmiron Lawsuits Filed for Patients with Vision Loss Due to Elmiron Use
In a rush? You can use our Quick Contact Form to tell us the basic information about your case.
We are handling Elmiron lawsuits for patients who have suffered vision loss due to their use of Elmiron. These Elmiron lawsuits are filed against the drug companies responsible for Elmiron. This is because — despite a growing number of Elmiron-related vision loss case reports in the medical literature over the past few years — it was not until June 2020 that any warning about eye problems was included in the Elmiron drug label here in the US.
This Elmiron label change in June 2020 finally added some warnings for serious eye problems such as retinal pigmentary changes and pigmentary maculopathy. From our perspective, these warnings about Elmiron eye side effects were long overdue.
We are currently investigating possible Elmiron lawsuits for patients diagnosed with eye problems such as:
- Vision Loss / Blindness
- Maculopathy (retinal or pigmentation)
- Retinal Pigmentary Endothelium Injury (RPE)
- Pigmentation Maculitis
- Macular Degeneration (pigmentation or dry)
It is important to know that our Elmiron lawsuits for patients who have suffered vision loss are filed only against the pharmaceutical companies responsible for Elmiron — not the doctors who prescribed the Elmiron as a treatment for their bladder diseases.
Significantly, it is not necessary for the patient to have been using Elmiron regularly right up until the time when their Elmiron-related vision loss was diagnosed in order to file an Elmiron lawsuit. That is, unlike most other drug injury cases, the patient could have stopped using Elmiron months before a medical doctor was able to diagnose their eye problem.
Please feel free to contact us if we can be of assistance to you in regards to a possible Elmiron lawsuit.

Either way, you will get Mr. Lamb’s impressions – not an intake person, a paralegal, nor some other lawyer – about your case based on his many years of experience.
