Macular Degeneration (ARMD)
Early diagnosis and prompt treatment of macular degeneration with Eylea or Lucentis can be potentially sight saving. This is performed at the City Eye Centre using topical / local anaesthetic to make the procedure as pain free as possible. Generally treatments are performed monthly until the ARMD subsides (an initiation/induction phase), then treatment is extended to around 6-8 weeks. Every patient however is treated with an individualized dosing strategy as part of your treatment plan. Long-term treatment is essential to maximize visual potential and maintain your vision (a maintenance phase).
