Diabetic macular edema: Current and emerging therapies

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Diabetic macular edema is a leading cause of vision impairment among people within the working-age population. This review discusses the pathogenesis of diabetic macular edema and the treatment options currently available for the treatment of diabetic macular edema, including for focal/grid photocoagulation, intravitreal corticosteroids and intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents. The biologic rationale for novel therapeutic agents, many of which are currently being evaluated in clinical trials, also is reviewed.
