Erectile Dysfunction Drug Causing Men to Go Blind?

Aug 17, 2007
Since the release of Viagra onto the market in the mid-1990's, there have been a number of reports regarding complications associated with the erectile dysfunction drug. Men report adverse side-effects to the drug, including cardiovascular and ocular complications. Yet, despite reports of such serious side effects, men of a variety of ages still choose to use Viagra as a catch-all cure for erectile dysfunction.

Viagra works at treating erectile dysfunction in the first place, by blocking two specific enzymes in the body, known as PDE5 and PDE6, which exist throughout the body, but in higher concentrations in the penis. The problem here: PDE6 also plays an important role in the processes that make vision possible. Thus, blocking the enzyme causes complications with the vision of male users.

Proponents of Viagra argue that the reports of the complications can be explained away by aging, that the trouble with vision typically reported by male users are mere results of the aging process. But, considering that the side effects occurred even in Viagra's youngest users, we know this cannot explain every instance of the side effect. In truth, we can determine that in many cases, Viagra causes some men to go blind.

This isn't to say that Viagra isn't without its positive attributes. Male users certainly seem to profess gratefulness to the erectile dysfunction drug, for its effects on their sexual relationships.

But is the cost of sexual satisfaction too high?

Men seem willing to risk life and limb for the opportunity to have somewhat normal penis function in the form of an easy-to-swallow little blue pill, but with such great risks as cardiovascular and ocular complications, we have to wonder if the risk balances with the reward.

For men who wish to avoid the complications associated with Viagra, there are other, more natural options for the temporary cure of erectile dysfunction, Following the popularity of Viagra in the mid-1990's, many companies began marketing natural alternatives to the popular drug. Yet, men continue using Viagra, despite the risk of blindness and other obvious and prevalent complications associated with the manufactured drug.

More public awareness about dangerous complications associated with erecticle dysfunction drugs is necessary, as well as more public awareness about the natural male enhancement alternatives to the drug. By educating men, we can ensure that fewer men lose their vision due to this very dangerous drug. Men shouldn't have to choose between their vision and their sex lives, and the many natural male enhancement alternatives to Viagra make this choice unnecessary.
