About Susvimo (initial fill)

Overview

This medication implant is used to treat a certain serious eye condition (age-related macular degeneration). It is used by people who have had at least 2 injections of ranibizumab or a similar medication injected into the eye with good results. Ranibizumab works by slowing the growth of abnormal new blood vessels in the eye and decreasing leakage from these blood vessels. This medication may help prevent decreased vision and blindness.

How to use

Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start using ranibizumab implant and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

This medication is an implant placed into the affected eye(s) by a health care professional. The affected eye is numbed before the procedure. Your eye will be monitored before and after placement. Your implant device will be refilled as directed by your doctor, usually every 6 months. To help prevent serious side effects, carefully follow your doctor's instructions after the implant is placed, after each refill procedure, and after the implant is removed. Use any eye drops exactly as directed by your doctor.

After the implant is placed, keep your head above shoulder level for the rest of the day. Sleep with your head on 3 or more pillows during the day and night after the implant is inserted. Do not remove the eye shield from your eye until you are told to do so by your doctor. For at least 7 nights after the insertion, wear the eye shield when sleeping. Do not push on or rub the eye, or touch the implant area for 30 days after the insertion. Many patients will need to wait a month after the implant procedure to do strenuous activities, but ask your doctor what length of time is safest in your case.

After the refill procedure, do not push on the eye, rub the eye, or touch the implant area for 7 days. If you miss a scheduled refill, contact your health care provider right away to schedule a new appointment.

After implant removal, keep your head above shoulder level for the rest of the day. Sleep with your head on 3 or more pillows during the day and night after the implant is removed. Wear an eye shield for at least 7 nights. Do not do strenuous activities until 14 days after the implant removal.

Your health care provider should give you an implant card after you receive the implant. Keep the card in a safe place and show it to all your health care provider(s). You may only receive an MRI under very specific conditions if you have this implant.

Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse.

Side effects

See also Warning section.

Eye pain, blood, or redness on the white of the eye may occur. If any of these effects last or get worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
