Question:
My 85-year-old father has macular degeneration. Last week he received an injection in the eye as treatment. He feels very tired. Could the injection be the cause of his fatigue?     

Answer:
In the absence of knowing which of the various medications that were used on your father, I could not say that the injection could not cause him to become tired, but I do think any tiredness he might experience would be short-lived. Please keep in mind that there is a significant and real emotional aspect to receiving an injection directly into the eye. I suggest you discuss this with his retina specialist.
