Diabetic macular edema (DME) is the accumulation of fluid in the macula due to leaking blood vessels resulting from diabetic retinopathy. Therapies targeting vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) have been shown to improve visual acuity in DME patients. The anti-VEGF agents used in the treatment of DME are Lucentis and Eylea—both approved for the treatment of DME—and off-label Avastin. In addition to the anti-VEGF therapies, two long-acting intravitreal corticosteroid implants, Ozurdex and Iluvien, were approved in the United States in 2014 for the treatment of DME. Given the competitive DME market, it is essential to understand how DME patients are currently being treated using real-world data.
