Hello Y. Shmoil ,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

Your sister has macular edema. The treatment she has been given is state of art treatment and is according to the protocol and guidelines. While there is a small chance of diminution of vision, but in majority the treatment is restored to pretty good levels by this treatment. Unfortunately there are no fast solutions. Laser is being used at some centers but Lucentis and Eylea has far superior results.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
