Ozurdex Implant

Ozurdex

Older woman on city street

The Ozurdex is a steroid implant that is FDA approved for retinal swelling or edema secondary to retinal venous occlusion. The Steroid is biodegradable and lasts approximately 4-6 months within the eye where it is slowly dissolved.

The eye is prepped with Betadine solution to prevent any type of infection that can occur with an injection. The eye is anesthetized as well to prevent any eye discomfort that may occur with the injection of this implant.

After receiving the Ozurdex implant, you may notice a large floater, which is the implant itself. Your vision may be blurry for 3-5 days post injection and may be red for 2-3 weeks post injection.
