A 58-year-old male presented with a progressive decrease in vision after he received intravitreal ozurdex injection 6 months ago for diabetic macular edema. Visual acuity in the right eye and left eye was 20/630 and 20/125, respectively. The right eye lens showed intralenticular dexamethasone implant. Intraocular pressure was 40 mmHg in the right eye and 16 mmHg in the left eye. Fundus examination revealed nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy with macular edema in both eyes. As the patient's intraocular pressure was not controlled by maximum medical therapy, he was listed for phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation.
