ABOUT RETINAL INJECTIONS
Macular degeneration is a retinal condition that develops when the proteins within the macula begin to clump together. As the disease progresses, unwanted blood vessels begin to form and leak, leading to a more severe form of the condition known as wet macular degeneration. To slow down the progression of this disease, The Eye Center physicians offer retinal injections. These injections are specially formulated from anti-vascular endothelial growth factors (anti-VEGF) to temporarily stop macular degeneration from worsening. Depending on the severity of your condition, you could notice a drastic improvement in your overall eye health. However, since the effects of these injections are only temporary, you will need to attend periodic appointments at our Bloomington, IN practice to maintain your results.
If you are diagnosed with macular degeneration or another retinal condition (like diabetic retinopathy), retinal injections can do wonders for your eye health and slow or stop the progression of your condition. Since these injections provide a wide range of benefits, our team prefers this treatment for many retinal diseases. We perform these injections in one of our private treatment rooms at our Bloomington, IN office. We will begin by administering anesthetic drops to the eyes and cleaning them once they are fully numb. From there, we will ask you to maneuver your eyes so we can administer the injection.
