Anti Veg-F Intravitreal Injections
Anti-VEGF medication injection treatments for Wet Macular Degeneration
A common way to treat wet macular degeneration targets a specific chemical in your body that causes abnormal blood vessels to grow under the retina. That chemical is called vascular endothelial growth factor or VEGF. Several new drug treatments (called anti-VEGF drugs) have been developed for wet AMD that can block the trouble causing VEGF. Blocking VEGF reduces the growth of abnormal blood vessels, slows their leakage, helps to slow vision loss, and in some cases improves vision.
We administrate the anti-VEGF drug (such as Lucentis or Eylea) directly to your eye and this is performed as an outpatient procedure.
