Your ophthalmologist administers the Avastin® directly to your eye in an outpatient procedure.
Before the procedure, your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) will clean your eye to prevent infection and will use an anesthetic to numb your eye. The drug is then placed in the back of your eye with a very fine needle, passed through the white part of your eye. Generally, you do not see the needle itself. You may receive multiple Avastin injections over the course of many months. Repeat treatments are often needed for continued benefit.
In some cases, your Eye M.D. may recommend combining Avastin treatment with other wet AMD treatments. The treatment that’s right for you will depend on your specific condition.
