Intravitreal Injections for Macular Degeneration and other Retinal Conditions

In Australia, Macular degeneration is the commonest cause of blindness in people aged over 50, whilst diabetic eye disease is the commonest cause in younger individuals.

Macular degeneration causes distortion and loss of central vision. Patients report difficulty reading, especially in dim lighting, and recognising faces becomes difficult if the disease is advanced. The main risk factors are advancing age, family history, and smoking.

There is effective treatment for wet macular degeneration, delivered by eye injections. In most cases, vision is stabilised, and in a significant proportion, it is improved. For more information, visit Macular Disease Foundation Australia

Similarly, there is effective treatment available for diabetic retinopathy. Optimal control of blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol are key to prevention. But if present, early detection of diabetic retinopathy maximises the chance of good vision.
