    2 years ago I had 3 injections of eyelea which worked well for 2 years. My monthly OCT scan then indicated that I needed further treatment. I have now had 5 injections, but this time the efficacy is much reduced.I have no problems with the injections, but take prophylactic antibiotics. I am also fortunate to have private medical cover.

    Comment:
    the reason I`m writing this review is not that I`m dissatisfied with my treatment but of side affects. The right eye I get the injections in has become very dry and scaley on the lid and the skin around the eye. Also my scalp and my neck are doing the same thing. Very itchy and irritating. At first I thought it was my shampoo, so switched 3 times. Then we bought a water softener to no avail. Quest ... Show Full Comment

The next injection was avastin and this medicine reversed everything the lucentis did. I refused to take another avastin, due to research I conducted which showed avastin is chemotherapy for ex. ovarian cancer, and sometimes causes necritising faciatis, with another shot o ...
