Why, after two injections of Avastin, is my vision worse?
Unfortunately, Avastin® treatment is not successful in every case. Patients experience significant visual improvement in approximately 35 percent of cases, stabilization in another 50 to 60 percent, and 5 to 10 percent of cases can worsen. If you are concerned about how your eyes have responded to this treatment, you may wish to seek a second opinion.
