I have experienced a fleeting big yellow dot in the middle of my field of vision.....mostly with isopropyl and butyl based poppers. I attribute this and other negative effects, such as dangerously low blood pressure, to toxic impurities.
Any study done on eye problems attributed to poppers has to USE a known chemical composition of poppers, together with any impurities present, to adequately explain what might be behind the rare reported eye problems.

I have experienced some spots with various brands. I don't think I have had any spots that lingered after the euphoria ended. The only time I felt worried about the spots in my vision while doing poppers was when I tried the "Dirty Thirty" brand. I don't know what kind of chemicals are in it but that shit had me seeing big silver dots in my vision. Imagine wearing contact lenses made out of aluminum foil. I had never seen anything like it in my life. It actually frightened me quite a bit. Also, the euphoric feeling was overall very intense and disorienting. As I think about it now, I would say it was very similar to having an extremely bad acid trip. I thought I lost my mind and I was going to be stuck that way for the rest of my life. Maybe I was given a bad batch or maybe the contents of the bottle were expired, I don't know. I just advise everyone to not use that Dirty Thirty brand.

4. 4 hours
6. Too much
7. None needed
8. It isn't just isopropyl. Isopropyl is prone due to it evaporating easier and giving you a higher dose. You will get the same problems if you go really hard on any nitrite. If you get any spots just shut the session down. You are going too hard.
