A patient who took too many doses of an erectile dysfunction drug permanently damaged his eyes, doctors reported this week. Almost two years later, his vision — everything looks red — has still not returned to normal.

The 31-year-old man bought a bottle of IronMag liquid sildenafil citrate, which was marked for research use, online and without a prescription, the doctors reported in Retinal Cases and Brief Reports. Sildenafil citrate is used in many popular prescription erectile dysfunction drugs, including Viagra. The bottle included a dropper to deliver the recommended 50-milligram dose by mouth.
