Patients with refractory diabetic macular edema treated with ziv-aflibercept experienced improved visual acuity and macular thickness, with no adverse ocular or systemic side effects reported in the retrospective case series.

All patients had previously received injections of anti-VEGF therapy. Patients received an average of 2.03 injections of ziv-aflibercept after switching treatments.
