Abstract

We describe a corneal limbal technique of intravitreal injection for use in cases in which it is difficult to confirm the position of the needle. Using this translimbal approach, the needle's position is easily identified and the intravitreal injection can be given using topical anesthesia. This technique is an option in eyes with a cloudy cornea or a large iridectomy.
