Cataract/Anterior Segment, Comprehensive Ophthalmology
In this surgical video, Dr. John Hovanesian offers pearls for injecting Dexycu, a dexamethasone intraocular suspension administered at the end of cataract surgery to manage postoperative inflammation. It is best to inject the treatment parallel to the edge of the iris, painting it in the ciliary space. Occasionally, a small amount of Dexcyu may end up in the anterior chamber - small bubbles typically do not cause further problems, oftentimes settling into the far anterior angle. Take care when hydrating the wound after injecting the suspension to avoid flushing it away.
