I think the fact that they are tiny needles is weirding you out but I can tell you from experience I'd bet my left nut it's far less painful than 2000 shots of laser or injecting fluid from a syringe into your eye ball.

I think most people here have no idea really how this works. Diabetic retinopathy is monitored and using lasers, treated leaving scar tissue on the eye. At later stages they use a syringe inject youre eye to treat it if laser does not work. This method not only yeilds better results its also far more effective method and less invasive.

You never know. I actually have an issue going on with my eye where I get an injection (shot) in my eye every 4 weeks. I was very nervous & skeptical at first, but it has helped me actually see again.

Might it help to cure retinitis pigmentosa?

I can barely tolerate an eyedrop if you think you're getting a block of needles into my open eye you better knock me out first.
