The reason these drugs are supposed to be by prescription only is because there are contraindications for taking them. I wonder whether the people who developed blindness had the conditions which the manufacturers had stated in advance were known contraindications. If so, did the patient conceal information from the physician? Did the physician prescribe it disregarding available information? Did the patient get it from the internet or similar source to circumvent the examination/prescription process?
Supposedly all the people who reported blindness or visual impairment of any kind had diabetes or other conditions which put them at an increased risk for such problems. In which case the doctors should not have prescribed it in the first place.
