Dislocation of Dexamethasone Intravitreous Implant

Dislocation of Dexamethasone Intravitreous Implant A 46-year-old woman had visual acuity impairment in the left eye after riding a bicycle. The pseudophakic left eye (scleral-fixated posterior chamber intraocular lens) had received a dexamethasone intravitreous implant (Ozurdex) 2 weeks earlier. Visual acuity was 20/100 OS and was 2 lines worse on the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study chart than before implantation. The right eye was blind due to chronic intermediate uveitis. On examination, distinct corneal edema of the left eye was seen. The implant was dislocated in the anterior chamber with endothelial contact. Intraocular pressure was 10 mm Hg OS. After explantation of the implant, both corneal edema and visual acuity slowly recovered. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
