In One Eye

In its own way, this is a pretty amusing story:
US health officials are examining rare reports of blindness among some men using the impotence drug Viagra.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating up to 50 reports of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy blindness, or NAION.

FDA spokeswoman, Susan Cruzan, said they have no evidence yet that the drug is to blame but added, "We take this seriously."
Given these data, those of us who were warned early in our lives that we'd go blind if we participated in another type of sexual activity perhaps can't help but think that those warnings were true.
