After 5 injections, I experienced no improvement at all.There's still fluid behind the macula. It's time to try Avastin so the drug companies should not be the only ones benefitting from this expensive medication[Lucentis]

This drug along with a most excellent Doctor has saved my mother sight for the past three years. She lost most of her sight in her left eye due to another condition (she is 81). Her right eye maintains 20/30, with a slight improvement in both eyes this treatment. I highly recommend this drug for anyone with Wet Macular Degeneration.
