Beovu Blindness Lawsuit in 2021 – File Your Claim Here
A certain level of vision loss is expected as one ages due to the vagaries of aging; however, a condition known as age-related wet macular degeneration can lead to worsening vision that may culminate in vision loss if not treated in a comprehensive and timely manner. This condition is caused by leaking blood vessels in the eyes that can slowly stop the retina from taking in light and images as it was meant to, causing progressive blindness. The retina is responsible for capturing images and then sends them to the brain’s optic nerve which then interprets the image in order to give you a clear picture of your surroundings. Should the blood vessels that feed the retina slowly start degenerating, this vital part of the eye won’t work as is required. Age-related wet macular degeneration has clear symptoms, and a diligent as well as reasonable primary healthcare provider will employ early detection and an accurate diagnosis in order to save the patient’s eyesight. That said, a certain medication that was released just a few years back has been shown to interfere with the proper functioning of the eyes, worsening AMD and potentially leading to blindness. The medication, given as an injection, has recently come under fire after it was shown to cause a condition called retinal vasculitis, which could set the stage for permanent vision loss.

Beovu works by inhibiting certain growth factors which are responsible for the growth of blood vessels. Unfortunately, these growth factors are elevated once an individual is of a certain age. Once these growth factors are prevented from expression by Beovu, blood vessels don’t encroach into the retina, which then preserves your vision.
Beovu injections are given in the arm once bi-monthly, and they are dependent on how aggressive your age-related wet macular degeneration, or AMD is.
Beovu causes inflammation of the blood vessels in the retina. One can expect to experience:
- Eye pain
- Visual disturbances
- Eye floater increase frequency
- Eye redness
- Sensitivity to light
- Vision may appear blurry
- One may lose their ability to see
- Eyelid swelling
- Bleeding around one’s eyes
- Hives and itching
Beovu injections by themselves can cause the following:
- Vision loss
- Retinal vasculitis
- Retinal artery occlusion
- Occlusive retinal vasculitis
Beovu Black Box Warning – What Happened?
In early April of 2020, Novartis announced that it was closely liaising with the FDA as well as other relevant regulators in order to revise its label to reflect some of the disturbing side effects that were being experienced by some of the consumers of the drug, with vision loss being the most disturbing or alarming side-effect. By June 2020, the FDA approved the Beovu label update which included warnings for retinal vascular occlusion as well as retinal vasculitis. The new label urged patients to report any vision changes while taking the medication to their primary care providers immediately.
Beovu and Retinal Vasculitis
Retinal vasculitis and vascular occlusion are thought to be the two things that can be attributed to vision loss in individuals taking Beovu. The first one causes inflammation of blood vessels which can then cause them to narrow, become weaker, thicken or form scar tissue. Once this happens, the organs fed by these blood vessels atrophy or stop working at an optimal rate, with this case being deterioration of eyesight due to diminishing retinal function. In addition, blocked blood flow to one’s retina, also known as concomitant occlusion can lead to vision loss.
Beovu Settlements in 2021
To date, there have been no settlements for Beovu class action lawsuits. Intake is still ongoing, and it will take the ruling of the courts to determine that the drug manufacturer was negligent due to its failure to warn the public about the deleterious or harmful effects of its drug. The process takes up to a year, and enough cases have to be tried in order to come up with a standard ruling which will help inform the fate of other legal claims.
