Ozurdex Implant

Dexamethasone implant is a small rod shaped implant containing the prescription medicine dexamethasone, a corticosteroid, which is injected into the eye (vitreous) in your doctor’s office to treat diabetic macular edema. The vitreous gel present in the eye slowly dissolves the biodegradable implant releasing the medication. Dexamethasone blocks the leakage of the blood vessels present in the retina and reduces swelling or inflammation in your affected eye.
