Purpose: To report dislocation of dexamethasone implant (Ozurdex®) into the anterior chamber and to discuss intervention options. Design: Interventional case report. Methods: An 89-year-old woman presented after Ozurdex® implant injection for chronic cystoid macular edema secondary to idiopathic intermediate uveitis. The dexamethasone implant dislocated into the anterior chamber. Pharmacologic dilation was administered and the patient was placed in a reclined supine position. Results: Successful repositioning of the implant into the vitreous cavity. Conclusions: Although it is a rare complication, anterior dislocation of a dexamethasone implant may have serious consequences. Early recognition and appropriate management is advisable.
