Switch to Eylea reduces fluid improves visual acuity in eyes with wet AMD

March 31, 2015

Read the Perspective from Andrew P. Schachat, MD

The retrospective study included 31 eyes of 31 patients with neovascular AMD who responded poorly to Lucentis (ranibizumab 0.5 mg, Genentech) and/or Avastin (bevacizumab 1.25 mg, Genentech) and were switched to Eylea (aflibercept 2 mg, Regeneron).
