I'm having a frustrating time with the last Lucentis injection (Thurs. afternoon) in my good eye. The eye continues to be red & irritated, and my vision has diminished even more than after the previous injection in Nov. Everything is terribly blurry with tiny flecks in my field of vision. In exams the eye itself shows no signs leakage and hasn't since last spring. The doctor seems to feel the continued injections are necessary as a prophylactic measure. At first my vision seemed to improve. The past few seem to be diminishing it. Does Lucentis reach a point of diminishing returns after a certain number of injections? I was given monthly injections (first in the left eye in which I've lost central vision, for a while in both eyes, and now just in the right eye) since Sept. of 2013. In Nov. the doctor decided I could go for 8 weeks between. Has anyone encountered this type of thing with long term injections?
