Retinal Injections


Anti-VEGF medicines are used to reduce bleeding and leakage from blood vessels associated with diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and retinal vein occlusion.

What can I expect if my ophthalmologist recommends an eye injection?

  • An anesthetic will numb the surface of your eyeball so you don’t feel pain. The anesthetic may be in eyedrops or eye gel form. Sometimes you might get a small injection of numbing medicine.
  • An antiseptic on your eye and eyelids will help prevent infection from bacteria near the eye.
  • Your ophthalmologist will likely help you hold your eye open with a small device called a speculum. It also helps to prevent infection from bacteria on the lids.
  • Your ophthalmologist will ask you to look in a certain direction to help you not to see the needle and help them inject medicine in a specific part of the eye.
  • You will get the injection. The needle is very thin. You will probably feel only pressure and not a sharp sensation. The injection is through the white part of your eye.
