Look inside a healthy eye

This photo, taken by a Retina Specialist, shows what the back of a healthy eye may look like.

Your doctor may refer to it when looking at pictures of your eyes.

The area shown here is called the retina. It works to capture what you see.

Patient case: Lora*

Before she received LUCENTIS, Lora had mild proliferative DR (PDR).

  • PDR is the later stage of DR, when abnormal blood vessels grow over the surface of the retina. These weak blood vessels may bleed into the eye
  • Lora was at step 7 on the DR scale

*Not an actual patient.

DR may get worse even if you are not having any symptoms

That’s why it is important to continue treatment with LUCENTIS, as prescribed by your Retina Specialist. If you are not receiving LUCENTIS, talk to your Retina Specialist to see if treatment with LUCENTIS is right for you.
