Thanks for your query ar
I understand your concern
Lucentis is a drug that is injected in the eye in very small volumes , but it does or can increase the eye (intra ocular) pressures, its always best to either postpone the travel or postpone the injection . You can fly anytime after 1 week of Lucentis
