When treating retinal diseases, an intraocular injection, or injection directly into the eye, is the best way to place medication exactly where it’s needed and to deliver the optimal dose of medication.
Macular degeneration, or age-related macular degeneration (AMD), affects a small area in the center of your retina called the macula. AMD can occur in one or both eyes, where it may progress slowly or quickly.
Diabetic Eye Exam
Dr. Mathura and Dr. Smithen can identify changes inside your eye caused by diabetes long before you notice your first symptom, then initiate treatment to prevent damage to your retina.
Diabetic eye disease refers to several eye conditions that develop in people with diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes causes two primary eye diseases, diabetic retinopathy, and diabetic macular edema.
Dr. Mathura and Dr. Smithen can detect physical changes in your eyes before you have symptoms. For this reason, routine eye examinations are essential to protect your eye health.
