Lucentis, Ozurdex, Avastin and Eylea injections
Lucentis, Ozurdex and Avastin treatments are monthly injection used to treat wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD), which is the UKs leading cause of blindness. Though it doesn’t cause pain, your central vision can deteriorate within days. Wet AMD is caused by abnormal blood vessels cause damage by forming beneath the macular, which is the central point inside the eye.
Injections are made directly into the eye by a consultant, preventing the growth of abnormal blood vessels in the macula.
