Does an Avastin injection raise eye pressure?
JUN 05, 2015
Does an Avastin injection raise your eye pressure? If it does, would it be beneficial to draw out fluid from the eye before receiving the injection?
All injections inside the eye result in an immediate increase in intraocular pressure and the eye typically responds automatically by reducing the pressure over several minutes. For most patients, removing fluid from the eye prior to the injection is not necessary.
