I haven't had injections done by a radiologist in Florida who utilizes idea 5% and the injections were not painful and the recovery from the injection took place within 3 to 4 hours. The same injections were carried out by my best neurologist in Canada and he was using adding 10%. Idea when applied to an open wound is very painful and that is what happens when you break the outer membrane of the eye thing goes in and causes irritation. Again suggested to my Canadian retinologist to use 18 5% which you eat as long as I purchase it on my own because it was not available within the hospital. He has been using it for the last six injections and my pain levels are very low and the recovery from the injection as I say it takes only three or four hours. I realized the idea is used as an antiseptic and 5% has been known to be very effective just as much as the 10%. Everyone should discuss the matter with your knowledge I just see what he says on this matter. David
