    AMD right eye. Avastin 1 year followed by Lucentis one year. No improvement (although my doctor thinks this is the improvement). Suffer from headaches and itching since switching to Lucentis. Thinking about stopping treatment.

    My vision was 20/200. I have had only 2 injections. I have tears and a lot of pain for at least 8hrs. My eye is sensitive to light and still pains a great deal. I hope this gets better.
