LUCENTIS® (ranibizumab injection) is an injection given into your eye. The recommended dosing schedule that has been tested in clinical studies is 1 injection per month.
What you should know about receiving injections in the eye:
- Many people who get injections feel some pressure on their eye. Most of the time this pressure is all you will feel. In most cases, the pressure goes away within an hour after the injection
- Your Retina Specialist may also give you antibiotic eye drops to use for a few days after the injection to help prevent infection
Like other injections given into the eye, serious eye infection, also known as endophthalmitis, and detached retina have occurred with LUCENTIS. In some cases, serious eye infections have been known to cause blindness.
