    Behavior of SD-OCT Detectable Hyperreflective Foci in Diabetic Macular Edema Patients after Therapy with Anti-VEGF Agents and Dexamethasone Implants

    Purpose: Diabetic macular edema (DME) is the most common cause of blindness in the working-age population. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) allows detection and monitoring of the edema and a detailed analysis of the retinal structure. Hyperreflective foci (HF) are small, circumscribed lesions on OCT, and their origin is yet to be determined. Our study was aimed to shed light on HF pathophysiology, by analyzing their number and location in DME patients at baseline and after therapy. Methods: A prospective, observational study on 59 eyes of 51 DME patients who were treated with antivascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy (VEGF ...
