Delivery of corticosteroids directly into the eye is more effective than injections adjacent to the eye, according to results from a comparative clinical trial of macular edema in patients with noninfectious uveitis. The results were published online September 27, 2018 in the journal Ophthalmology. The two intravitreal groups had larger reductions in macular edema when compared to the results in the periocular treatment group. Reduction from baseline was 46%, 39% and 23% for the dexamethasone implant, intravitreal triamcinolone and periocular triamcinolone treatment groups, respectively.
