KCTan posted:

I would like to find out whether it is advisable to have a pre-op avastin injection to reduce macular edema before heading into cataract operation in 2 weeks time to prevent and control post op swelling which is one of the side effects that could take place.

Have been in treatment for diabetes retinopathy with macular edema. Eye has been laser treated and currently only jabs to stabalize edema condition. Average scale range of edema(according to doctor) 250-350.

Hope to hear from you. Thank You.
