I was one of the main contributors to this long and now closed thread on vision problems and popper use: http://poppersguide.com/forum/10213
Still an interesting read. I'd like to give a recap and an update on this.
- Recap*: it is now clear to both many users and many eye docters that use of poppers can seriously and possibly permanently damage your retina, to be more precise the macula. Most attribute it to a change of the chemical that is bottled.
- Update*: in my own experience the damage seems not be permanent. I almost have no problems after 4 months of complete abstinence I have contacted a few people how wrote to me and these are their responses on long term effects (six people). (Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post your progress on this thread.)
"My eyesight just recovered completely and has not gotten any worse since I started to take it again. But I take much less (!) than I did before!"
(He quit in april)
"It's 18 months since I tried iso for the first and last time and I'd say my sight is pretty much back to normal. I had my annual checkup at the eye hospital (which is for a condition I have) and they didn't notice anything. The only thing I'd say is that my eyes are a bit sensitive to bright light, but the yellow dot has gone and people's faces/ car number plates are clear again, I'm happy to say."
"in fact unchanged, but sure not worse
i continue to use poppers RUSH"
(He quit end of 2016)
"Took a long time but have fully recovered thank God. It was such a scary and horrible experience. My latest scans showed much improvement."
(don't know date he stopped, i guess 2018 /2019)
"My sight is almost back to normal one month and a half later. Still have a small light bulb when I blink my eyes and I look at bright things..but it's becoming unnoticeable sometimes, during the last few days I even forgot about it . "
"My eyesight is completely back to normal since more than one year."

I've made lots of different poppers and they all produce the visual toxic effects except amyl nitrite. With amyl nitrite, I can hit it constantly, go into a mild trance, sustain it, and then within minutes after the last hit, my vision is totally normal again. With isopropyl, butyl and isobutyl, my vision gets out of whack for much longer after only a 15 minute session. I hit a wall at that point and have to stop whiffing lest I pass out. Every subsequent whiff produces nothing but horrible effects.

>they all produce
That's not what the received wisdom on this question currently suggests.
This issue with Maculopathy is solely connected to isopropyl nitrite and is probably not causing, but exacerbating a pre-existing condition. Once there was a chemist on here who explained that the molecular density of IPN (forgive me this is just from memory) was the reason. This may sound dumb: I got the impression that IPN has a very distinct molecular character as compared to other nitrites, pentyl, butyl.
Anyway I think Madeplentypoppers probably knows what I mean and can explain it better.

I had used Poppers in 01/17 and i get Vision Prolems.
I have buy Lutein high doses and 1 month later the Vision Problems go away.
Since i have not used poppers again.
There are now any poppers which are safe for the eyes ?.
I would like to use poppers again but the risk to get Vision Problems again i do not want to go.
Sorry my english ist not so good.
