Hi all I noticed that someone had posted about dilation before injection. Some people were saying that they too gave this and done said they did not .
Basically ( I live in the Uk and have had about 75 injections for DMO) I attend my clinic which operates ‘One Stop Clinics’ this is a term used in hospitals I have not made it up. These are clinics for a variety of health issues not just concerning the eyes which mean that patients are seen then assessed and treated on the same day. Not all eye clinics run them but many do it is not really geographical it’s just what the clinics decide to run whether it be in the UK or not. So when attending a ‘One Stop Clinic’ your eyes will be dilated because everything is done on that one visit. If you don’t have a ‘ One Stop Clinic’ then you maybe assessed one day and treated on another day. Eyes are dilated generally so a good view can be made by the ophthalmologist. I am not 100% certain as why it would be done if just an injection is being done it might help with the placement of the injection but will ask when I next go to eye University and talk to the ophthalmologists.
