Intravitreal Injection Procedure
Intravitreal injection is the most common procedure in ophthalmology, but it does carry associated risks. Mastery of the procedure during residency training is critical to address increasing patient treatment needs. Residents are encouraged to gather instructional input from their supervising retinal specialists during training to develop their own procedural approach that is most comfortable, while observing the underlying principles and concepts outlined in this video.
This instructional video reviews:
- The precautions before, during, and after the procedure, including risk of endophthalmitis
- The technique performed at a major university medical center
- A method to standardize the procedure across multiple clinical settings
An instructional outline for intravitreal injection is also available for teaching the technique to residents.
