What Happens During Treatment with Avastin?
During an outpatient procedure, your ophthalmologist injects the Avastin directly into your eye.
Before the procedure, your ophthalmologist will clean your eye to prevent infection and numb your eye with medicine. A very thin needle is passed through the white part of your eye and the drug is injected. Usually you do not see the needle itself. You may need to continue having these injections over many months.
Sometime ophthalmologists will combine Avastin treatment with other treatments for the best chance of saving your vision.
