Stop it, stop it, or you will all go blind!

The ABC writes:
There are 38 reported cases of blindness among users of Viagra, four among those using Sialis and one using Levitra.
Perhaps assuming a causal link stems from a distorted echo of the myth that masturbation causes blindness.

Needless to say, Pfizer does not believe that there is a causal link:

The maker of Viagra, Pfizer, says 23 million people use the drug and the percentage of men reporting blindness after using it is no greater than among those who do not use the drug.
