Avastin Eye Injections

Avastin is a cancer drug that is re-packaged into injections and used for the unapproved (“off-label”) treatment of several eye diseases, including macular degeneration. The problem is not Avastin itself, but the syringes that are used to make individual eye injections of Avastin.

Silicone Bubble in Eyes After Avastin

The syringes are frequently lubricated in silicone oil. This oil tends to mix with the liquid Avastin in the syringe, and when patients receive an injection of Avastin in their eyes, silicone may be injected as well. This can leave silicone “floaters” that look like air bubbles to the patient.

Side Effects of Avastin Eye Injections

In addition to silicone floaters or air bubbles, Avastin eye injections have been linked to the following severe side effects:

  • Eye infection (endophthalmitis)
  • High pressure in the eyes
  • Increased intraocular pressure
  • Inflammation
  • Retinal tearing or detachment
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Low pressure in the eye (hypotony)
  • Damage to the cornea
  • Vision loss
  • Blindness
  • Other vision problems

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our lawyers are not currently filing an Avastin class action lawsuit. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for people who suffered silicone floaters or “air bubbles” from Avastin eye injections.

About Class Actions

Class actions are a great way for a lot of people to seek compensation for the same legal claim, such as a refund after purchasing a defective product. However, class actions can also have disadvantages for people who have far more severe injuries than the average plaintiff.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

Members of class actions may have to accept a “low-ball” settlement or higher attorneys’ fees. If compensation is awarded through a jury verdict or a settlement, members of a class action must also share the payout with everyone who qualifies to join the class action lawsuit.

Our lawyers are filing individual Avastin lawsuits so we can focus on helping people seek compensation for severe injuries. We are concerned that drug-makers did not adequately warn patients or doctors about the risk of Avastin eye injections. If you were injured, you may qualify for compensation for your injuries and medical costs.
