Viagra and Vision Problems

Viagra can decrease blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye, causing sudden vision loss. Most people who have suffered vision problems also had heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, certain pre-existing eye problems, smoking habits, or more than 50 years of life. Viagra has not been determined to be an actual cause of vision loss, but users are cautioned to discontinue use if they experience vision loss. Prolonged and unwanted erections can also occur with the use of Viagra.
