Choroidal Neovascularization Injection in Eye with Avastin – R31142-06X-Eye Injection-WM
When the retinas of people with AMD produce too much vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), new blood vessels form from the choroid (a vessel-containing layer under the retina), then grow into the retina. The new vessels, unlike normal ones, are leaky, and they allow fluid to enter the retina which distort the vision. This animation shows the injection of Avastin, a drug to help treat from eye diseases. The drug blocks the growth of abnormal blood vessels in the back of the eye.
