Geneva Eye Clinic now offers SYFOVRE to its patients. SYFOVRE is a prescription eye injection, used to treat geographic atrophy (GA), the dry advanced form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
GA is an irreversible eye disease. When GA progresses, lesions, or patches of damaged cells, will grow and affect your vision. GA lesions can permanently damage your retina. SYFOVRE is designed to slow down the growth of these lesions.
SYFOVRE is administered as an injection into the eye. It is given every 25 to 60 days. The most common side effects include eye redness, pain, and swelling. More serious side effects can occur, such as infection, inflammation, and bleeding in the eye.
SYFOVRE is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for GA.
