Images extracted from a video taken during the subretinal injection.

Panel A: pre-injection. The cannula is approaching the retina. Its shadow is seen near the optic disc.

Panel B: the injection has just begun. The cannula tip is in the subretinal space and the retina is raising.

Panel C: the injection has been completed and the cannula tip has been removed from the retina. The "bleb" covers the entire macula and is bordered on the left side by the optic disc. The raised fovea is visible.
