Iluvien for DME

Has anyone had iluvien insert for Diabetic Macular Endima? What was your criteria to go for Iluvien vs other treatments? ## Hello, Chris! How are you? Inluvien is approved for us in patients who have previously tried a course of corticosteroids and had no significant rise in intraocular pressure. One provides sustained treatment for 36 months.

I have had just one implant so far and it will wear out soon. It's been almost 3 years since I received it.
