My story will follow in a number of posts. I hope it is enlightening. Isoprop poppers causes temporary (and possibly permanent) destruction of central vision. End of.

Poppers macul malop maca what?? Maculopathy caused by isopropyl use. Quite well known about now and has been for some time, mainly due to idiots replacing it and banning isobutyl. Steer well clear, there are plenty of other nitrites out there, just not for sale here in the UK

I'm still waiting for these enlightening posts that are coming soon, or maybe it is just end of....

End of Times? Probably. Now that Nigel Mustache has defeated the EU Dragon then anything might happen! I say ditch the yogurt and muesli and go for the Full English. Who knows what tomorrow will bring.

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think
Enjoy yourself, wash your undies in the sink
The years go by, seize life, be brave
Enjoy yourself, we're all heading for the grave

Its just letting me post a few words at a time - above is the approx maximum. Is it 'cos of iPhone - this is clearly a lot less than the comment above it?

Is isobutyl better than anything else on the market, when considering the loss of central vision?

I'm a drinker, but booze didn't ruin my eyesight. 'Iso feckin propyl' did...

So THAT explains the 'eye of God' I keep seeing when doing poppers (the strong ones)!

47yo - male - Australian.

I only ever used "amyl" (poppers) occasionally starting in the '80s - never a problem.

In the '90s I used it more often but still rarely. When I hit it, I hit it pretty hard. On one occasion, I went home with a guy I wasn't really into - he tried to get me to snort some amyl to get me into it, while I was lying down, and poured pretty much the whole bottle in my eyes! Well, that got me excited! Standing in the middle of the room, eyes wide open bellowing: "I can't see, I'm fucking blind, get me to a shower now!" I couldn't see a damn thing - totally blind, seriously - and the hit was extremely overwhelmingly intense! Panic on poppers! Rinsed eyes for about 30 minutes; my sight returned fully after about five minutes. Very red eyes for about 6 hours but nothing at all after a few days. No blind spots or similar at any time during this event, and no ongoing issues at all. I continued to use amyl occasionally.

In the early 2000s I used it a few times without incident. Then a few years later... another bottle at another time (and I hit it pretty hard) and each time I got "The Eye of Sauron" - a big green-yellow spot right in my central vision which peaked with the amyl, and faded as the amyl wore off. I just knew this was not good and not supposed to happen. I stopped using it suspecting central vision damage was in progress, although I couldn't find any information about it anywhere. The spot hung around a bit for a few days but then disappeared.

About five years ago I had double Lasik surgery. Several optometrists and an ophthalmologist/surgeon did very detailed examinations of both eyes and found nothing wrong (besides my long vision, of course). There was no detectable injury to my macular etc. My eyes are in perfect working order now - better than 6/6 (20/20) - they were 20/10 when I was a teenager.

Then... a few weeks ago I went to buy some "amyl" - been years since I tried it. I read up on it, and wouldn't you know it, since my last experience there has been an increase in reports of central vision problems with poppers. I looked around for something other than IPN. Took a few tentative sniffs and saw my old friend Sauron again (I heard he'd moved to New Zealand or something, so I was quite surprised to see him). That bottle went down the drain immediately. The spot faded quickly, lingering a little the next day (when I blinked, or moved from light into darkness) but was pretty much gone after 48 hours.

Now, I just don't know: Was the bottle I purchased IPN but sold as something else? Is it that the IPN of the mid 2000s which first introduced me to Sauron has left me with underlying damage which reappears with any type of poppers, as "Junior Eye doctor" [above] suggested? I just don't know. It's a real shame, as there is nothing quite like sucking dick with a lung full of amyl - more "swallowing" than "sucking".

Had to post the above comment on this thread - other/original thread was closed (but not not made clear in advance).

May I suggest this thread as an alternative to the original thread:

As for your question, Bert: no one really knows...

Some claim that there always were vision problems, just not that many people noticed it that clearly. Best to stay away for all brands.
