About intravitreal injections 

Injections of sight saving drugs into the eye have become the standard procedure for maintenance and improvement of vision in common conditions, including wet Macular Degeneration, and Diabetic eye disease. Around 700,000 injections were carried out in the UK in 2014/15, with ongoing rapid growth - fuelled by increased indications and new therapies.
