So I have macular edema associated with uveitis just like you. At first I had a lot of questions, but now I have a treatment option that worked for me—XIPERE®.

Talk to your doctor about whether
XIPERE is right for you.

First, let me share my story. Picture this, I’m at the grocery store looking at this box of cereal and I notice three things:

Dramatization
Image of blurry and wavy cereal box Dramatization
Image of cereal box with washed out colors Dramatization
Image of cereal box with black spots on it Dramatization
1. The box looks a bit blurry and wavy right in my central vision
2. The colors seem washed out
3. It’s a bit difficult to read the writing that’s on there

The symptoms of macular edema associated with
uveitis
were enough to get me to see my eye doctor again.
He recommended I see a retina specialist.

The most common complication of uveitis is macular edema, which
happens because of chronic inflammation in the eye.

Important Safety Information

  • Your eye doctor will monitor you for elevated eye pressure following treatment and manage it with medication or surgery if required.
  • See your eye doctor right away if your eyes become red, sensitive to light or painful, or if you notice changes in vision.
  • XIPERE is not appropriate for use in patients with eye infections. It should be used with caution in patients with a history of herpes simplex in the eye.
  • XIPERE is not appropriate for use in patients with a known allergy to triamcinolone acetonide or any other components of this product.
  • Use of corticosteroids such as XIPERE may produce cataracts, increased eye pressure and glaucoma, and may increase the likelihood of eye infections.
  • Patients being treated with XIPERE for extended periods of time will be monitored for problems with the body’s hormonal system, which controls the ability to respond to stress.
  • In clinical studies, the most common eye-related side effects were increased eye pressure and eye pain. Other side effects included cataract, floaters or flashes of light, injection site pain, burst blood vessels, reduced or blurred vision, dry eye, light sensitivity, redness, infection, swelling, watery eyes, eye or eyelid irritation, bumps on the eyelid, itchy eyes, and drooping eyelid.

The most common non-eye-related side effect was headache.

  • Corticosteroids should be used during pregnancy or nursing only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus or nursing infant. Talk to your eye doctor.
