INJECTIONS

Intraocular injections of Avastin, Lucentis or Eylea are common modern treatments for diabetic retinopathy and ARMD.  In addition, other retinal vascular problems respond to these treatments, too.

Retinal vascular occlusions, such as BRVO and CRVO, may also be treated with Ozurdex, a sustained release intra-ocular steroid, FDA approved for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy and uveitis as well.

Intraocular injections don’t hurt.  I prefer to numb your eye with several applications of a topical anesthetic before the injection.  Because there is a risk of intraocular infection, pre-operative topical antibiotics are often recommended.

Treatments are given in the office.  It is recommended you arrive with a driver to assist you, if needed.

Currently, I see patients with retinal diseases; macular degeneration, retinal detachment, macular holes, macular pucker within several different practices.....it's a different arrangement, but it allows more continuous care with many eye specialists. In addition, I am very accessible via the web. To schedule your own appointment, call any of the numbers below.
