We read the article entitled “Therapeutic effect of dexamethasone implant in retinal vein occlusions resistant to anti-VEGF therapy” by Wallsh et al with great interest.1 The authors investigated the efficacy of the intravitreal dexamethasone (DEX) implant in patients with retinal vein occlusions (RVOs) who have failed multiple anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) injections. They concluded that DEX should be considered as a treatment option in patients with RVOs who have failed anti-VEGF therapy. We congratulate the authors for this well-organized study, and would like to contribute to their findings.
