    Improving the accuracy and comfort of intravitreal injections

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

     

    Conclusion

    The early use of the device has shown it could be an important addition to the ophthalmology surgery tool kit. The guide not only provides added comfort for the patient during the procedure with its no-drape, no-speculum, no-calliper approach, but also benefits the surgeon or nurse practitioner in terms of efficiency and standardisation of the technique.

    Feedback I have received from my own patients and staff members has been positive. The steps required in the original intravitreal injection technique can be time consuming and require precision to ensure the treatment is delivered effectively. The guide however, provides a standard for the procedure with the aim to improve efficiency and accuracy, even in the case of a nervous patient.
