Intravitreal Injection for AMD

Summary

Intravitreal Injection for AMD

AMD stands for age related macular degeneration. It is a leading cause of blindness in the elderly. In wet AMD, abnormal blood vessels grow under the macula and continue leaking blood or other fluids that lead to blurred vision. It is treated by giving an injection into the vitreous humour. Pupils are first dilated with drops and the eye is anaesthetized prior to giving an intravitreal injection. Dry AMD is the more common of the two types of AMD and this is a very gradual process. It may take many years before sight deteriorates very seriously and many do not lose sight completely.
