Image of the Month
The powerful magnification in this fundus image montage highlights the Iluvien micro-implant like the bright yellow anther in a stargazer lily. Small enough to fit into a grain of rice 32 times, the intravitreal implant still packs enough power to provide a consistent and continuous therapeutic microdose of fluocinolone acetonide for up to 36 months. While its tiny size can make visualization challenging, this hidden gem is still working hard and providing treatment for the patient.
