An intravitreal injection is a procedure used to deliver medication into the vitreous cavity of your eye, which contains a gel-like substance. The medication delivered through the procedure treats specific eye conditions to correct your vision. Advances in medical technologies have improved the success rates for treatments like these.
Eye injections are among the most effective treatments for a wide range of eye problems. A top-rated retina specialist chooses the best quadrant of your eye for easy access during the injection. Local anesthesia is used to ease any discomfort during the procedure.
