    A 74-year-old female complained of seeing a round shadow at the bottom of her field of vision starting soon after intravitreal bevacizumab injection for neovascular macular degeneration. Fundus photograph showed a silicone oil droplet at the top of the photograph (arrow). Bevacizumab was prepared by a compounding pharmacy and was shipped in a BD insulin syringe with an attached 31-g needle. She had previously received 19 intravitreal avastin injections over the past two years without any problems.
