You can't say you Sister Purity Immaculata Of The Holy Whips didn't try to warn you boys!

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal health officials are examining rare reports of blindness among some men using the impotence drugs Viagra and Cialis....

This type of blindness is called NAION, or non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. It can occur in men who are diabetic or have heart disease, the same conditions that can cause impotence and thus lead to Viagra use.

The FDA has 42 reports of the blindness, 38 among users of Viagra and four among users of Cialis....

As to Sister Purity Immaculata, word is she was just jealous.

to me this says that some of the users of viagra and cialis have a pre-existing condition that can cause this blindness and that the drug hasn't prevented it.

Diabetes alone can cause blindness so I'm not too impressed with the diagnosis on those grounds.

Last night on a commercial promoting a late evening TV news program, I heard that a "study" showed a high correlation exists between Viagra users and heart disease. The commercial implied that Viagra causes heart disease. News at eleven. Anything to get ratings, eh?

There used to be a "high correlation" between the sales of alcohol and the salaries of college professors....and it's been shown that cancer in lab rats causes excess news stories.

the real stupidity of the rest of the story is that in Kansas, Medicaid has been paying for Viagra & other such drugs for sex offenders. They wouldn't pay for the allergy meds, pain meds, arthritis meds, etc. that I really needed (during the brief time I had medicaid before I finally got the disability & am still waiting for the year waiting period to be up before my medical kicks in!), but they'll make sure sex offenders can get it up. Don't we all appreciate the way congress has worked so hard to save the taxpayers lots of money on the horrid people on the "dole?" It's been a republican elephant bunch in the majority of both houses for what--?--12 years now? Gee, this viagra news gives new meaning to the term "good ol' boys' club." I have not yet heard any reports that the sex offenders have gone blind. That might be considered poetic justice by some.

something like 40 cases of blindness reported in 22 million guys taking the stuff....and no figures on how many had other problems which could also have led to eye problems, or how many were taking it against medical advice.

Sounds like a non-issue to me. There might be 25 cases of Recaltnerant Plebny in a population that large.

Mad Magazine! It was a staple of mine thirty years ago. What was the guy's name that used to write the "Canadian Corner" or some such. O'Rourke? P.J. O'Rourke? Sounds right, but I have a memory like a steel trap, rusted open.

some of the problems with viagra

Although I could see it causing problems with sight as it could raise the pressure in the blood vessels in the back of the eye which in turn would distort the choroid and the macula causing vision loss,
