For Diabetic Macular Edema “Vary expensive drug ($9000) – only use if covered by insurance.. Kaiser gave me this drug and I have had it in my eye for 2 years and its working. I have had glaucoma eye surgery in my eye to keep eye pressure low. The only negative thing is that it leaves a very small capsule in the eye that does not dissolve. So my Dr. does not think I can use this drug more than 2 or so times. I may switch back to another drug that works up to 3- 6 months per injection and cost much less.”

Works up to 3 years for 1 inje (taken for 2 to 5 years) August 3, 2017
