Jetrea How to Take

Jetrea (Ocriplasmin) belongs to the class of medications called proteolytic enzymes. It is used to treat an eye condition called symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion or VMA. VMA is caused by the jelly-like material (vitreous gel) in the eye sticking to the inner surface at the back of the eye (the macula). This causes reduced vision. If the condition is not treated, it may result in a hole in the macula, causing permanent vision damage. Ocriplamsin works by separating the vitreous gel from the macula.

Jetrea (Ocriplasmin) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms.
