Non-arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy (NAION or NAAION) is a condition that occurs when blood flow to the optic nerve is blocked. Non-arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy, sometimes called eye stroke, is characterized by rapid vision loss or blindness that may occur over minutes, hours, or sometimes days. Risk factors for Non-arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy include high blood pressure, diabetes, and atherosclerosis.

In rare cases, Non-arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy has occurred in patients taking PD5 inhibitors, such as Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra.

If you or a loved one took Cialis, Viagra, or Levitra and experienced a serious side effect, such as NAION, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Contact our experienced personal injury attorneys today for a confidential and free case evaluation.
