For patients with CME from uveitis, injections into the eye worked better than injections on the outside surface of the eye
- 46% reduction with Ozurdex (dexamethasone) implant in vitreous
39% reduction with triamcinolone acetonide (Triesence) in vitreous
23% reduction with triamcinolone acetonide (Kenalog) in periocular space
Each treatment was better than doing nothing, but the two intravitreal injections were best. Retina specialists often treat these patients with periocular (outside the eye) injections. This study argues that injections inside the eye are the more effective treatment.
