Who is LUCENTIS for?

LUCENTIS® (ranibizumab injection) is a prescription medicine for the treatment of patients with macular edema following retinal vein occlusion (RVO).

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. LUCENTIS is not for everyone. 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.

Some LUCENTIS patients have serious side effects related to the injection. These include serious infections inside the eye, detached retinas, and cataracts. Other uncommon serious side effects include inflammation inside the eye and increased eye pressure. These side effects can make your vision worse. Some patients have had increased eye pressure before and within 1 hour of an injection. Your eye doctor should check your eye pressure and eye health during the week after your LUCENTIS injection.

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

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.

The most common eye-related side effects are increased redness in the white of the eye, eye pain, small specks in vision, and a feeling that something is in the eye. The most common non–eye-related side effects are nose and throat infections, headache, and lung/airway infections.

LUCENTIS is for prescription use only.

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