Are you tired of constantly needing to visit your local optical care experts for injections in order to keep your eye from being harmed by your age-related vision problem? Illnesses of the eye such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration require regular care in order to monitor the spread of the disease closely, and for many of us this can also mean regular intravitreal injections in order to stop this disease from causing any further damage or harm to your eyes. If you are tired of the constant need for these appointments, or simply require a more advanced form of care, simply visit your local Hewlett eye surgeon at the offices of the Retina Consultants of Long Island and ask how intravitreal implants can work for you.
Often times intravitreal injections are also used to treat uveitis, a simple inflammation of the uveal layer of the eye that can lead to cataracts of glaucoma without regularly scheduled injections. Fortunately, the latest advances in optical technology and procedure have come together to form one of the most remarkable advancements in the treatment of optical conditions within the uvea through the use of intravitreal implants which can replace your need for regular injections from your professional Hewlett eye surgeon for an average of 30 months, or two and a half years. This implant is placed directly where it is needed most, within the posterior segment of the eye at the sight of your optical illness to provide a continuous release of the same corticosteroid medications you would otherwise receive through regular injections, allowing your doctor to insure that your eyes are truly being cared for around the clock to stop the disease from progressing into cataracts or glaucoma which can cause permanent loss of sight without laser surgery to correct these issues. This can work to insure that the more complex forms of uveitis, such as posterior uveitis, are stopped from causing progressive loss of vision. By utilizing an intravitreal implant, you no longer has to suffer from the inconvenience of an indwelling catheter, as well as being more effective against CMV retinitis, all while greatly lowering the risks of overall systemic toxicity.
If you are over the age of 40 and suffering from age-related optical conditions, uveitis, no matter how old you are, you can still receive the most advanced form of treatment possible to treat your advanced vision problems more effectively than ever before with intravitreal implants from your neighborhood Hewlett eye surgeon.
