The main reason why a patient will need this injection is to treat wet age-related macular degeneration. The macular is the specialised part of the retina which is responsible for the production of visual sharpness. The light that enters through the retina is changed into images which are then are sent to the brain.
This is affected when the wear and tear of the blood vessels that supply the layer of the retina are allowed to damage the macular which will affect seeing finer details. This is why an injection of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) is needed into the jelly of the eye.
