Doctors Levinson, Berinstein, and Garfinkel Present At the Annual Meeting of the Retina SocietyPosted in Announcements
Dr. Joshua Levinson, Dr. Daniel Berinstein & Dr. Richard Garfinkel of The Retina Group of Washington presented on “Improving the Safety of Intravitreal Injections” at the annual meeting of the Retina Society in Boston, MA. Intravitreal injections are frequently used to treat vision loss from diabetic macular edema and exudative (“wet”) macular degeneration. The RGW team analyzed the group’s collective experience with over 35,000 injections performed in 2016 and identified strategies to improve the safety of intravitreal injections. As a result of the study, these techniques have been adopted by academic centers and private practices across the country.
