    Lucentis is truly a miracle drug! After three monthly injections, my sight is normal and the wet amd has been stopped. It has been 5 months since my last injection. I highly recommend this drug .

    3 injections and this worked for me. Nurses administered injection, little discomfort, drove home afterwards.No side effects, apart from much improved sight.

    Comment:
    Has definitely helped prevent progression of AMD but most recent injections have caused severe headache and confusion, so unfortunately will probably have to discontinue. After reading the list of relevant side-effects herein it's no surprise that I've suffered some of them.
