To define the effectiveness of dexamethasone implant in macular edema in vitrectomized eyes.


Two eyes of 2 patients, (one with diabetic macular edema, the other with macular edema secondary to central retinal vein occlusion) who had been treated with intravitreal anti-VEGFs, triamcinolone, laser photocoagulations and vitrectomy + ILM peeling earlier without any response, were treated with IV dexamethasone implant as a salvage therapy.


Both eyes responded well to the implant both anatomically and functionally.

Take Home Message:

IV dexamethasone implant may be a good treatment choice for treatment of resistant macular edema in vitrectomized eyes.
