My macula oedemia is a little bigger and my ophtalmo spoke about an injection into the eye... I think it will be Avastin. And I want to know if it hurts, if there is big pain... In June I will go to see if there's no need of laser and maybe my ophtalmo will say "injection". The cost of one injection is 1500 Euros without insurance in France. What is the cost in USA?
Hope this helps;
This guy is great in terms of explaining much in a way that is NOT depressing and realistic. I know you are not looking for "internet info" but I found his site to not be the typical one. He also responds to every question and might be a good way to discuss with another professional in a relaxed way.
In the past few months, I have had 2 Avastin injections in each eye and a laser treatment in each eye. Last week, my opthomologist gave me a Lucindis injection, and he will do the other eye this week.He was reluctant to start because the Lucindis is so expensive, and he was afraid my insurance might not cover it.I have seen the Lucindis shots quoted as costing $2000 each.At two a month, indefinately, that's $48,000 a year. Still, the injection last week was better than the Avastin injections. I didn't have the black blob sitting in my vision afterwards.
