Image: Please suggest whether I need Accentrix injection for my eye problem.

Hi doctor,

I see wavy lines in my right eye. I was asked to do an OCT. After OCT, my doctor advised Accentrix injections. I am attaching my OCT here for your reference. Please suggest if there is any other option.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • What is your age? Are you diabetic or hypertensive? This history is important as treatment option will vary depending on this history.
  • Your diagnosis seems to be as vascular occlusion (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
  • Yes, this intravitreal injection is must and only this injection can reduce edema and improve your vision.
  • I know it is quite costly and may require repeat multiple doses at a gap of at least one month. Further treatment will depend on the follow up OCT (optical coherence tomography).
  • Also, keep using Amnac eye drop (Nepafenac) till then in your right eye on three times a day.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Then, it must be some vascular occlusion only and the treatment will remain intravitreal Accentrix injection (Ranibizumab) only.
  • Already, long time has elapsed so do not wait. Because, as time will pass the prognosis will also become poorer.
