    After using Avastin which worked fairly well for years, then I was switched to Eyela. Well, it is no wonder drug for me. I keep getting injections and every time I go back, the doctor says it is almost dry, but sorry, you need another shot. Ugh. The after effects are the same as Avastin's- a weeping eye for hours, pain, scratchiness, and lots of nose blowing. Is it worth it? If eventually I lo ... Show Full Comment

    According to my Doctor the 1 treatment had a good response. That relative to blood vessel issues. The problem is it horrifically clouded my vision in what is normally my better eye.

    Wet MD started and I had a few AVastin shots over a few months. No help. Switched to eylea and have gotten shots for about a year plus some laser treatments. Not much improvement. Dr. still says he is trying to get it under control. There apparently is a wide response depending on patient genetics. Not happy.

    I had been receiving injections of Avastin with no improvement in vision, although it did slow deterioration. I worked with my physician to get our Medicare Advantage provider to approve the switch to Eylea about 1 year ago. We also were able to get a grant to cover a portion of the co-pay, so the financial impact to us was minimal. I received injections every 2 months for 4 months, then every ... Show Full Comment
