- The intravitreal route of drug administration has been used to treat retinal conditions for decades, but only in recent years has it achieved more widespread popularity. This method of administration has enhanced the ability of the ophthalmologist to treat a variety of challenging ocular diseases and simultaneously has given hope to many patients with disorders once considered untreatable. Triamcinolone acetonide and the anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) agents are currently the most common medications given intravitreally. As the indications for IVT medications grow and as newer and better medications become available, this technique will likely become increasingly important and more commonly employed. The ophthalmologist must be able to recognize side effects and complications of IVT injections and be familiar with the basic technique. When IVT injection is performed in the manner outlined in this module, the risk of adverse events can be reduced. This module covers guidelines, techniques, follow-up exams and complications of intravitreal injections and is accompanied by two tables, one video and four images
