If your doctor has diagnosed you with an eye condition that causes swelling, leakage from the blood vessels in the eye and/or abnormal growth of blood vessels, eye injections may be used for treatment. We use eye injections such as Kenalog and Avastin to help treat certain eye conditions to help prevent further loss of vision.

Following an injection you can expect:

  • Minor discomfort for 24-48 hours
  • Your eye to tear
  • Your eye to be red at the injection site
  • You may notice mild blurred vision and black spots (should subside within a week)

For at least three days following an injection, you should avoid the following:

  • Rubbing your eyes
  • Wearing eye make-up
  • Using eye creams/lotion
  • Wearing contacts
  • Swimming
  • Getting water in your eye

If your vision gets worse after the injection or if your eye becomes swollen, painful or red (more than at the injection site), please contact our office immediately.
