About Retinal Injections
Macular degeneration is a retinal condition that develops when the proteins within the macula begin to clump together. As the disease progresses, unwanted blood vessels begin to form and leak, leading to a more severe form of the condition known as wet macular degeneration. To slow down the progression of this disease, Dr. R. Daniel Grossman and his team at The Eye Center of Southern Indiana offer retinal injections. These injections are specially formulated from anti-vascular endothelial growth factors (anti-VEGF) to temporarily stop macular degeneration from worsening. Depending on the severity of your condition, you could notice a drastic improvement in your overall eye health. However, since the effects of these injections are only temporary, you will need to attend periodic appointments at our Bloomington, IN practice to maintain your results.
If you are diagnosed with macular degeneration or another retinal condition (like diabetic retinopathy), retinal injections can do wonders for your eye health and slow or stop the progression of your condition. Since these injections provide a wide range of benefits, our team prefers this treatment for many retinal diseases. We perform these injections in one of our private treatment rooms at our Bloomington, IN office. We will begin by administering anesthetic drops to the eyes and cleaning them once they are fully numb. From there, we will ask you to maneuver your eyes so we can administer the injection.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
