Hello There. I can understand your concern. i'm sure you would have consulted a doctor who is a specialist and not a quack. so when he suggests you something, he knows what he is doing. accentrix is Ranibizumab, which is used in treatment of macular degeneration often. yes you can go ahead with this . there is no problem with such injections. they have undergone a lot of clinical trials and have been proved effective. it can be administered intravitreally only. and usually done once a month for upto 12 doses. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.
