Macular degeneration is an age related wearing out of the central retina, essential for detailed vision. The ‘dry’ form’s progression can be slowed by use of anti-oxidant medication. The ‘wet’ form, where an abnormal blood vessel grows under the retina can now be treated with Lucentis injections.

In-room intravitreal administration of Lucentis for wet macular degeneration is performed with monitoring supported by both High Definition OCT and Fluorescein Angiography.
