Lucentis

lucentis

We are offering Lucentis therapy for the treatment of wet macular degeneration. This is a newly FDA approved drug. It does require dilation of the pupils and is administered as a painless eye injection in the office. A series of treatments is usually required.

Lucentis is a prescription medication for the treatment of patients with wet macular degeneration. As mentioned earlier in on this page wet macular degeneration involves the leaking of blood vessels onto the retina. After receiving FDA approval in June of 2006 Lucentis has become a guiding light source for patients once facing blindness.

Prior to receiving your Lucentis injection your eye will be prepped and cleaned in order to prevent any type of infection. Our retina specialists will then numb your eye to limit any discomfort. Patients do report slight pressure on the eye. Once the injection has passed the pressure will subside.
