Alternative Diffuse DME Treatment: Laser Photostimulation versus Topical Medical Therapy

Introduction: The standard first-line treatment for diffuse diabetic macular edema (DDME) is intravitreal injections. Although considered safer and more effective than laser, these drugs may have serious ocular and systemic complications. Recent research of the pharmacological properties of Nepafenac, found that this drug could reach the retina in sufficient concentrations to produce beneficial effects. We evaluated the efficacy of...

Micropulse Laser 577 nm: A Perfect « Second Line » Treatment for ME ?

Purpose: The authors report several tips and tricks increasing efficiency of 577 nm Micropulse Laser (MIP) in treatment of macular oedema recurrence in eyes with previous ILM peeling surgery. Methods: The study is a retrospective clinical study of sub threshold laser treatment as a tissue-sparing laser photocoagulation for ME. Eyes included underwent treatment for ME due different pathologies (Diabetic Retinopathy, branch or central...

Micropulse Contiguous Grid Laser for Diffuse DME

Objective: To investigate micropulse contiguous grid laser in fovea involved DDME and to correlate SD-OCT structural changes with resolution target visual fields. Purpose: To investigate micropulse contiguous grid laser in the treatment of eyes with DDME involving the fovea, and second, to correlate OCT findings with resolution target visual field (RTVF) measurements of threshold acuity at fixation, best acuity measured at any...

Subthreshold Diode Micropulse Laser for the Treatment of Clinically Significant DME Less than 400 μ

Purpose: To assess effect of micropulse diode laser (MPDL) on best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central foveal thickness (CFT) in treatment of clinically significant diabetic macular oedema (CSME) as compared to conventional argon green laser (CGL) treatment. Design: Single-center, prospective, interventional, comparative study. Methods: Twenty four patients (40 eyes) with diabetic CSME were randomly assigned to MPDL (n=20) or CGL...
