Avastin/Lucentis

Introduction of a new treatment for Macular Degeneration
Aged Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of visual impairment among older adults in developed countries. Treatment options are limited. Dr. Teye-Botchway’s application to have the drug Avastin used in Bermuda for the treatment of macular degeneration was recently upheld by the Chief Medical Officer, and the Pharmacy/Therapeutics Committee of King Edward Memorial Hospital. This drug is currently available in Bermuda and has been used on certain patients with this condition.
