    Uveitic macular edema response to intravitreal dexamethasone implant is independent of optical coherence tomography findings

    Purpose To identify predictive response optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in uveitic macular edema (UME) treated with intravitreal dexamethasone implant (DEX). Methods Retrospective study of 66 eyes (53 patients) treated with DEX for UME. SD-OCT macular scans were collected prior to DEX treatment and 6 weeks and 3 months after the DEX implant. OCT images were evaluated for qualitative and quantitative characteristics (central retinal thickness, CRT and macular volume, MV). A multivariate analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was carried out to study the predictive influence of OCT and clinical covariates on outcomes. The main outcome was a composite endpoint based on ...
