Monitor your vision

It's important to monitor your vision on a regular basis.

Download an Amsler grid here

Here's how to use it:

  • Test each eye separately
     
  • Hold the grid in front of you—about 14 inches away
     
  • If you wear glasses for reading, leave them on while looking at the grid
     
  • Cover one eye and look directly at the dot in the center of the grid with your other eye
     

If you notice blurry or wavy lines, or dark or blank spots in either eye, call your Retina Specialist right away. This will help your Retina Specialist evaluate your vision and make treatment decisions.

Learn low-vision tips

Follow these vision tips

If you are experiencing vision loss, you can make some simple changes that will help you feel safer and more comfortable.

In the bathroom:

  • Use a bath mat with a different feel than the floor or tub. The texture change can help you enter and exit the bath safely
     
  • Have a grab bar installed in your tub or shower to help reduce the risk of slips or falls
     
  • Test the water temperature by turning on the cold water handle first. Always add and turn off the hot water first
     

In the bedroom:

  • Keep a lamp you can easily switch on and off from your bedside (such as a clap-on light)
     
  • Have a nightlight
     

In the living room:

  • Remove potential obstacles, such as coffee tables, footrests, and stools
     
  • Eliminate furniture that is constructed of glass and/or that blends in with the floor
     
  • Avoid glare-inducing furniture, or cover furniture with material to reduce this effect
     
  • Pin down area rugs to avoid tripping over them
     

In the kitchen:

  • Roll up your sleeves or wear short sleeves when cooking at the stove
     
  • Use pots and pans with heat-resistant handles and knobs
     
  • Turn handles inward when cooking to avoid accidents

Who is LUCENTIS for?

LUCENTIS® (ranibizumab injection) is a prescription medicine for the treatment of patients with wet age-related macular degeneration (wAMD), macular edema following retinal vein occlusion (RVO), and diabetic macular edema (DME).

What important safety information should I know about LUCENTIS?

LUCENTIS is a prescription medication given by injection into the eye, and it has side effects. Some LUCENTIS patients have had detached retinas and serious infections inside the eye. You should not use LUCENTIS if you have an infection in or around the eye or are allergic to LUCENTIS or any of its ingredients.

Uncommonly, LUCENTIS patients have had serious, sometimes fatal, problems related to blood clots, such as heart attacks or strokes.

Some patients have had increased eye pressure before and within 1 hour of an injection.

Serious side effects include inflammation inside the eye and, rarely, problems related to the injection procedure, such as cataracts. These side effects can make your vision worse.

The most common eye-related side effects are increased redness in the white of the eye, eye pain, small specks in vision, and increased eye pressure. The most common non-eye-related side effects are nose and throat infections, headache, lung/airway infections, and nausea.

If your eye becomes red, sensitive to light, or painful, or if you have a change in vision, call or visit your eye doctor right away.

For additional safety information, please talk to your doctor and see the LUCENTIS full prescribing information.
