Anti-VEGF injections are a treatment for Wet AMD.
What do anti-VEGF injections involve?
Step 1: Your in-depth consultation
Following a detailed assessment, your Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon will discuss the best course of treatment for you. We offer a variety of anti-VEGF injections: Lucentis, Iluvien, Eylea, Triamcinolone, Ozurdex and Avastin.
The same consultant will carry out your procedure and your checks at follow-up appointments.
Step 2: During the anti-VEGF treatment
The anti-VEGF injection is performed quickly and with as little discomfort as possible. You will be made comfortable on a couch, lying back with your head on a pillow. Anaesthetic drops are applied to the surface of the eye and in some cases a tiny anaesthetic injection may be given. The eye is cleaned with an iodine solution and the anaesthetic is given plenty of time to take effect.
The anti-VEGF agent is then injected. Some patients say they feel a little pressure on the eye.
Step 3: Rest and recovery
Afterwards, you will be taken to our recovery area to rest before returning home and given details of any eye drops required.
Step 4: Your aftercare
Following your anti-VEGF treatment, your consultant will see you for a follow-up consultation to check on your progress, assess the results and answer any questions you may have. You will be provided with an emergency contact number so that if you do experience any unexpected symptoms, you can contact us.
