I have wet AMD in my left eye, dry in the right. I have been getting shots of Eylea in the wet eye for about 1 year. I’m now at 8-week intervals. The last two times I got the shots I feel like after the anesthetic wore off the irritation in my eye was more pronounced than it had been with earlier shots. There was redness, that gritty feeling that I always get, and a lot of tearing.
More pain as time goes by from the Eylea injections
All of which was gone by the following day. Is it normal to experience more pain or irritation as time goes by from the shots? It’s certainly manageable, and I wouldn’t even consider curtailing the treatment as I have had fantastic results. I also do not experience any discomfort during the actual procedure (shots), it’s just the rest of the day after I get them.
Seeking others' experiences
I just want to be sure that there isn’t something there that I should be concerned about. I will ask my doctor the next time I’m in for a treatment, just wondered if anyone else has had the same experience.
