Following the recommendations of the SSO (Swiss Society of Ophthalmology), all intra-vitreal injections are performed in a type I operating theater at Vista Alpina.

Intravitreal therapy (injection of Lucentis ® or Eylea ®)

Intravitreal treatment aims at reducing macular oedemas (= water retention in the retina). This occurs in various illnesses, e.g.

  • wet macular degeneration

  • diabetic macular oedema

  • thromboses (= blood clots) of the retina

A small dose of medication is administered into the eye (into the vitreous body) through frequent (often times monthly) injections. This medication dries the macula.

The frequency of injections is custom scaled according to the course of the disease. It is the goal of Vista Alpina Eye Clinic, to administer the least possible injections without the macular oedema recurring.


Determining the optimal injection frequency requires years of respective experience and the necessary medical touch.
