The answers to this are A and D. Jetrea is known as a type of inhibitor that can be injected into the area where the protein or the solid particle is found. This will help dissolve the protein so that the vision of the person can be improved again. Getting this type of injection may come with some side effects but they are not serious.

The side effects can last for a week but after that, the benefits of the injection can be evident and will be very useful to different individuals. Just remember that not everyone is a good candidate for this. There may be other treatments available to those who cannot be considered as good candidates for this type of treatment.

If they are stage 4 PVD then the vitreous is already detached from the macula and so the injections wouldnt do anything.
