Lucentis Injection for Macular Degeneration

By DuPage Medical Group Ophthalmology

LUCENTIS® (ranibizumab injection) is a prescription medicine for the treatment of patients with Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Macular Edema following Retinal Vein Occlusion (RVO).

LUCENTIS is a prescription medicine for the treatment of patients with Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Macular Edema following Retinal Vein Occlusion (RVO). LUCENTIS is an injection given into the eye. Before you get your LUCENTIS injection, your eye will be prepped—or cleaned thoroughly—to help you avoid eye infections. Then your Retina Specialist will numb your eye to limit any discomfort you might feel. Many people who get injections for wet AMD feel some pressure on their eye. Most of the time this pressure is all you will feel. After your Retina Specialist gives you the injection, the pressure should go away.

What could LUCENTIS mean for you?

You may be able to improve or maintain your vision—and keep doing the simple things you enjoy. Remember, wet AMD is a chronic condition and there is no cure. But it can be managed with regular treatment with LUCENTIS.
