"In May, Healthy Vision Month, the National Eye Institute (NEI) calls on Americans to make their vision a priority by taking the necessary steps to protect vision, prevent vision loss, and make the most of the vision they may have remaining.




In the days following EYLEA administration, patients are at risk of developing endophthalmitis or retinal detachment. If the eye becomes red, sensitive to light, painful, or develops a change in vision, advise patients to seek immediate care from an ophthalmologist [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].

Patients may experience temporary visual disturbances after an intravitreal injection with EYLEA and the associated eye examinations [see ADVERSE REACTIONS]. Advise patients not to drive or use machinery until visual function has recovered sufficiently.
