Effect of Vitrectomy on the Evolution of Refractory Diabetic Macular Edema


Brief description of study

In case of bilateral non-tractional diabetic edema refractory to 6 months of anti-VEGF injections (anti Vascular endothelial growth factor injections), a randomization is done: one eye will receive the standard treatment (anti-VEGF injections, switch to another anti-VEGF drug, additional photocoagulation) and the other eye will receive vitrectomy.

After six months, in both groups, the patient may receive another treatment if needed : dexamethasone implant, laser photocoagulation, anti-VEGF or even vitrectomy in the non-vitrectomized eye
