Why is it important to stay on track with LUCENTIS for wet age-related macular degeneration (wet AMD)?
Keep in mind that while vision improvement is one goal of treatment, another is to maintain* the vision you already have.
*Maintain is defined as losing less than 15 letters on an eye chart exam after 12 months of treatment.
How do I know if LUCENTIS is helping with my wet AMD?
Follow-up appointments with your Retina Specialist are key to tracking your progress with LUCENTIS and its impact on your vision problems.
What you can do
Using an Amsler grid and a journal, you can track your wet AMD. Look at the Amsler grid, record your observations, and discuss them with your Retina Specialist.
While looking at the Amsler grid, note any blurring or blind spots. Write down what you see, and discuss your observations with your doctor.
What your Retina Specialist can do
Your Retina Specialist may track your progress with LUCENTIS with eye chart exams and special pictures of the back of your eye. Two types of pictures your Retina Specialist may take are:
- Optical coherence tomography (OP-tih-KULL co-HERE-intz tuh-MOG-ruh-FEE), or OCT
- Fluorescein angiography (floor-ESS-een ann-gee-AH-gruh-fee), or FA
