Have you or a loved one been administered Beovu (brolucizumab)? This drug, administered by injection, is supposed to treat wet age-related macular degeneration, which causes blurred vision and blind spots. However, the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) has issued an alert to its members that Beovu may instead cause blindness in some patients.

Many patients who received a Beovu injection later suffered retinal vasculitis and retinal artery occlusion, which can both develop into total vision loss.

What Symptoms To Look Out For If You’ve Received a Beovu Injection

If you have received an injection of Beovu, you could be at risk of side effects that could escalate into permanent vision loss. If you’ve experienced any of these negative side effects, alert your doctor immediately.

  • Changes in your vision
  • Pain or redness in the eye
  • Bleeding in or around the eye
  • Swelling of the eyelid or the eye
  • Hives, rash, redness, or itching
  • Changes in vision, including “floaters” or increased light sensitivity

We Need to Hold Drug Manufacturers Responsible for the Harm They Cause

Beovu was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October of 2019, and the alert was issued in February of 2020.

In May of 2020, an article published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology recommended that all Beovu injections should be suspended until the cause of these side effects could be determined, especially since Beovu is not the only drug available to treat wet age-related macular degeneration. The article stated that “in the face of the known risk, its use is unwarranted.”

However, Beovu remained, and continues to remain, on the market.

In June of 2020, the FDA approved a label update for Beovu that added additional warnings and safety information, but that warning comes too late for patients who received Beovu injections from October of 2019 to June of 2020.

Drug manufacturer Novartis failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the potential vision-related side effects caused by Beovu injections before releasing the drug to the public, and they need to be held accountable for the harm they’ve caused as a result.

What Compensation Is Available to Victims of Beovu?

When drug manufacturers harm patients through dangerous or defective drugs, they can and should be held responsible for all the ways their products damage patients’ health, happiness, and ability to earn a living.

Considering Beovu has been linked to permanent blindness, a disability that affects every aspect of life, victims may be eligible for significant compensation, including:

  • All medical expenses related to the drug injury, including any future medical treatment
  • Pain and suffering (physical and emotional) resulting from the injury, including future pain and suffering resulting from permanent injuries like blindness
  • Compensation for lost income, including future income if the injuries leave the victim unable to work
  • Potential punitive damages

    Due to a personal injury accident, not my fault, I needed to find a lawyer to help me with my case. I chose Ponce Law due to TV advertising and proximity to my home. Throughout the process they were helpful explaining steps being taken. They were helpful in reducing some of the subrogation expenses which ultimately put more of the settlement in my pocket. Thank you to David Wyatt & Taylor Desmet for their assistance throughout this process.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
