Triamcinolone acetonide, a minimally water soluble steroid injected in suspension form, has been reported to be a well-tolerated agent for intravitreal injection, prompting a decrease in diabetic macular edema on optical coherence tomography. We report our experience with this treatment in 19 eyes with persistent diabetic macular edema. METHODS We… CONTINUE READING
