Injections for the eye

Many patients with wet macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and retinal vein occlusion require regular Lucentis injections into the eye to control the disease. In most patients, the injection needs to be repeated every 4 weeks, although some patients can be treated less frequently once the disease stabilises. Injection into or around the eye may also be needed for inflammation of the eye or swelling of the retina. Less commonly, intraocular injection is used to slow down the over-growth of abnormal blood vessels, which may cause internal bleeding or painful glaucoma.
