Proper Use of This Medicine
Treatment with verteporfin and laser light occurs in two steps. First, the verteporfin is injected into your body. Second, 15 minutes later, a laser light is directed at the affected eye.
The dose of verteporfin will be different for different patients depending on your body surface area. Laser light treatment must follow verteporfin injection 15 minutes after the start of the injection. The laser light treatment lasts 83 seconds. If you have any questions about the proper dose of verteporfin, ask your doctor.
