Wondering if anyone has had any successes with treating macular edema with Lucentis (or Avastin, for that matter). My doctor first planned to treat my eyes (problems were discovered a few months ago) with one injection in each eye and then laser, but decided at my last visit to wait on the laser and do up to six injections in each eye before trying something else.
I guess this is good news, but I'm wondering if I should just ask for laser treatment now: the shots are painful and anxiety producing, I have to take time off work for each, and can't do much for a few hours after. Also, my insurance covered the first two injections, but surely they'll balk soon? Obviously, if this is the way to go, I want to do it, but wonder if anyone has any opinions...
