The effect of corticosteroids on macular edema in patients with noninfective uveitis
This study aims to identify the effect of corticosteroid injections in the treatment of macular edema in patients with non-infective uveitis. This is a retrospective study and all the data was collected from medical data of the patients in a private clinic in Tirana. Patients with macular edema secondary to non-infective immediate, posterior, or panuveitis who were treated with corticosteroids were included. We compare the OCT of the patients before and after the treatment with corticosteroids. Other data included age, causes of uveitis; best-corrected visual acuity before and after treatment, and intraocular pressure before and after corticosteroid treatment. Data were analyzed by SPSS.
Best correction visual acuity was improved after corticosteroid therapy. In OCT we identify a significant reduction of central macular thickens. Only one patient developed an intraocular pressure of more than 30 mmHg one month after corticosteroid injection. The use of corticosteroids in the treatment of macular edema in non-infective uveitis had good improvement in visual acuity and reduction of central macular thickness.
