Dr. Michael Tolentino was one of the developers of the intraretinal injection procedure. Today, intraretinal injections are one of the leading treatments for a range of retinal diseases:
- AMD (neovascular age related macular degeneration)
- CSME/PDR (clinically significant macular edema/ proliferetive diabetic retinopathy)
- Retinal Vein Occlusions
- CME (cystoid macular edema)
- CNVM (choroidal neovascular membrane) secondary to multiple retinal diseases
Here is a video of an Avastin injection for choroidal neovasculization by Dr. Paul Kaufman.
