To have an eye consultation with Dr Khalil
An intravitreal injection is a process that delivers a specific drug directly into the eye near the retina
Intravitreal injections are done in the jelly-like substance that fills the larger part of the eye which is the vitreous cavity. Delivering drugs in this space is the best method to send the required treatment to the need part of the retina or other parts in the back of the eye.
Why do we do intravitreal injections?
Intravitreal injections are used to treat some retinal diseases that were previously intractable to treatment methods such as cases with severe Diabetic retinopathy and ceter of vision (macula) hemorrhage associated with aging in some people (age related macular degeneration, ARMD), as well as some cases of thrombosis of the retinal vessels.
Intravitreal injections and other surgeries
Each case has its own indications and methods of injection, and Dr Ahmad Khalil will tailor the injection dose and technique to your precise condition
