Comment:
My husband did not have the IV form but had it injected right into this eye for Macular Degeneration and one week to the day from having it done suffered a Lacunar Stroke and has right sided weakness. He was never told by the opthalmologist that the drug Avastin has not been approved by the FDA and if he had been he would NOT have agreed to the treatment. Judith R. Finzer (spouse)

Improvement immediately after first shot and now almost normal eyesight after 7 shots. Doctor even surprised at the rapid improvement! Doctor wants to switch to EYLEA, but I have resisted the change since Avastin has worked so well.

Great effect after 1 dose. Dark spot has become hazy to opaque. Waiting to find out how effective dose #2 will be. Avastin price is right and assistance programs also available

Shots in the eye are very difficult for me, however, if it saves my sight, it's certainly worth it.
