How is Lucentis given?
Lucentis is given as an injection into your eye. Your doctor will use a medicine to numb your eye before giving you the injection. You will receive this injection in your doctor's office or other clinic setting.
For a short time after your injection, your eyes will be checked periodically to make sure the injection has not caused any side effects.
Lucentis is usually given once every month. After you have received the first 4 injections, your doctor may change your injection schedule to once every 3 months.
Follow your doctor's dosing instructions very carefully. The timing of your monthly injections is very important for this medication to be effective.
To be sure this medicine is helping your condition and is not causing harmful effects, your eyes will need to be checked on a regular basis. Do not miss any follow-up visits to your doctor.
