Treats Disease/Condition

Uses

Vitreo-macular adhesion (VMA) is an eye condition in which the vitreous (the jelly-like substance inside the eye) adheres to the retina in an abnormally strong manner. Jetrea is used to treat VMA.

How To Use

Jetrea is a non-invasive procedure, meaning it does not involve actual surgery in the eye. Instead, a small needle is inserted into the anesthetized eye and a small amount of the Ocriplasmin concentration is delivered into the vitreous. This procedure is called “intravitreal injection” and is used extensively in vitreo-retina eye care for drug delivery of the popular anti-VEGF medications, like Lucentis, Avastin, Macugen and Eylea.

Side Effects

Side effects include eye floaters, eye pain, blurred vision, and visual impairment.Although uncommon, possible complications from Jetrea include vitreous floaters, bloodshot eye, eye pain, vision blurriness and distortion, macular hole and retinal swelling. In very rare cases, retinal detachment can occur.
