Intravitreal injections are the most common treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion and diabetic eye disease. These involve injecting a drug into the eye that reduces bleeding and leakage from damaged or abnormal vessels.
Dr Chauhan has performed over 10,000 intravitreal injections and uses a combination of anaesthetic drops and gentle injection technique to put patients at ease and minimise any discomfort. Patients will generally feel pressure in the eye but no sharp pain.
