Abstract

Sildenafil citrate (Viagra), an oral therapy for erectile dysfunction, is a selective inhibitor of PDE-5, but also PDE-6, which is found in the retina. This drug has some ocular side effects which are uncommon, dose- dependent, and reversible. Reported ocular side effects include changes in color perception, blurred vision, changes in light perception, electoretinogram changes, and conjunctival hyperemia.
