Repeat dexamethasone implants yield controlled visual function in eyes with noninfectious uveitis

Repeated dexamethasone pellet implants in eyes with noninfectious uveitis resulted in improvement in retinal thickness and long-term visual function and resolution of ocular inflammation, according to a study conducted in the United Kingdom. The retrospective, observational case study included 38 eyes of 27 patients with noninfectious uveitis, of which 14 eyes received one Ozurdex dexamethasone implant (Allergan) and 24 eyes received multiple dexamethasone implants. Mean follow-up after the first implant was 17.3 months.
