Lucentis Injection

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Prescription Required

  • Product Details


    Lucentis is a prescription medication for serious eye problems, particularly those affecting the retina. It's given by qualified eye care professionals and has become an effective way to treat sight-threatening issues.

    Lucentis works by stopping abnormal blood vessel growth in the retina, a common problem in conditions like wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic macular edema (DME), and macular edema from retinal vein occlusion (RVO). This reduces the risk of vision loss linked to these problems.


    Only trained eye care professionals should give Lucentis to ensure it's used correctly and safely.


    The main ingredient in Lucentis is ranibizumab.


    Common drug-drug interactions may include:

    • Efgartigimod Alfa
    • Rozanolixizumab


    If you experience issues while using Lucentis, tell your healthcare provider immediately. 

    Using aseptic methods during administration is advised to prevent infections. 

    Regular check-ins with your eye care provider help monitor treatment progress.
