Anti-angiogenic (anti-VEGF) drugs

This treatment involves having an injection into your eye to treat certain retinal conditions that cause abnormal blood vessels to grow and leak under the retina. Patients with these conditions can lose central vision when abnormal blood vessels bleed under the retina at the back of the eye. A series of injections of anti-VEGF medicines are given into the back of your eye to stop these blood vessels growing and help control the leaking blood. This treatment is highly effective in preserving central vision in many people.

Common conditions in which it may occur are Wet age-related macular degeneration, Myopic choroidal neovascularization, Diabetic macular oedema, Retinal vein occlusion and any other retinal conditions that causes fluid to leak under the retina.
