The delivery of medications directly into the vitreous cavity through an injection or implant has become a commonplace in ophthalmology. Common diseases treated by intravitreal injections include neovascular age-related macular degeneration, clinically significant macular edema/proliferative diabetic retinopathy, cystoid macular edema following retinal vein occlusions and uveitis, endophthalmitis, and choroidal neovascular membrane secondary to multiple retinal diseases. Intravitreal injection procedure as per VRSI guidelines has been described in detail. Complications of intravitreal injections include those related to the technique and those related to the drug being used. It is important for the retina specialists to master the right technique of intravitreal injection in an effective way for patient safety as well as for reduction of complications.
