An expert panel of vitreoretinal surgeons highlights the key findings from recent pivotal clinical trials that investigated efficacy of various therapeutic strategies in the treatment of Diabetic Macular Edema (DME). Faculty emphasizes the need for individualizing DME treatment based on specific clinical circumstances. Clinical examples are provided that reinforce the concept that unattended comorbid conditions in the diabetic population (i.e., systemic hypertension, dyslipidemia) can adversely affect long-term visual outcomes.
