Eye injections post cataract surgery

So Dr says I need intraocular injections to reduce retinal swelling which increased after cataract removed in September. It might help improve vision

Anyone have had this done?

I havenít heard of it. I would like to know more because my sister will be having cataract surgery in about 2 weeks.
I hope all goes well for you.

If you havenít had problem with retinal swelling, cataract surgery should be fine. Retinal swelling comes from complications of high blood pressure or diabetes. Mine probably was from blood pressure and increased after the surgery.

My mother in law has been getting some sort of injections for about two years to stall off macular degeneration. She seems to handle it great so it must not be too invasive. And this woman passes out with any minor injury.

I have a younger friend who has to have them periodically for an eye disease. I think it may be macular degeneration, but not sure. I hope you have relief of your symptoms. Let us know how it goes and if it works for you.

After corneal transplants plus cataract surgeries (I opted to have both procedures done simultaneously so Dr wouldn't have to go in to my eyes later and endanger the graft and risk rejection.) I was given steroid drops to reduce inflammation, but no one mentioned injections.
