    Improving the accuracy and comfort of intravitreal injections

    Mainstay treatment requires accurate positioning, depth and angle of the injection needle

     

    IVT and nervous eye movements

    The guide also adds confidence and prevents unnecessary risks to the patient. This is particularly true in patients whose eyes move during the procedure, typically due to pre-procedure nerves or the uncomfortable sensation associated with the use of a lid speculum.

    This movement can be controlled by the fixation studs located on the footplate of the guide.  Once the patient is looking in the desired direction, the eye can be stabilised through the placement of the device.

    The steadying of the eye allows me to deliver the treatment to the correct anatomical position safely and confidently without the risk of the patient moving, which can cause complications such as corneal abrasions and retinal damage.
