Treatment Via Intravitreal Injection
Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) and several other retinal conditions are treated with Anti-VEGF Intravitreal Injections. These injections have become the most commonly performed eye procedure in the world and increase in volume each year. Their benefit mainly involves preventing permanent vision loss for certain retina conditions and in some cases even improving vision.
How is the treatment given?
Your Ophthalmologist will use an instrument called a speculum to keep the eyelid open. Prior to
the procedure, local anaesthetic drops will be applied to numb the surface of the eye and
antiseptic drops will be applied to clean the area and prevent infection. You will receive an injection of Anti-VEGF intravitreal medication which takes less than a minute to complete.
