EYLEA must only be administered by a qualified eye
doctor. Injection into the eye with EYLEA can result
in an infection in the eye and retinal detachment
(separation of retina from back of the eye).
Inflammation in the eye has been reported with the use
of EYLEA. If your eye becomes red, sensitive to light,
painful, or develops a change in vision, seek
immediate care from an eye doctor.
In some patients, injections with EYLEA may cause a
temporary increase in eye pressure within 1 hour of
the injection. Sustained increases in eye pressure
have been reported with repeated injections, and your
eye doctor may monitor this after each injection.
There is a potential risk of serious and sometimes
fatal side effects related to blood clots, leading to
heart attack or stroke in patients receiving EYLEA.
Serious side effects related to the injection
procedure with EYLEA are rare but can occur including
infection inside the eye and retinal detachment.
You may experience temporary visual problems after
receiving EYLEA and also during and/or after the eye
doctor visits that will follow. Avoid driving or using
machinery until your sight has recovered.
Because EYLEA is composed of large molecules, your
body may react to it; therefore, there is a potential
for an immune response (allergy-like) in patients
treated with EYLEA.
