Diabetic macular edema (DME) is a leading cause of blindness in patients with diabetes. The purpose of the research is to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment of patients with DMOs resistant to the administration of ranibi-zumab, using the intrauritreal implant "Ozurdex". Material and Methods. 66 patients (98 eyes) are examined. All of the patients were divided, into three groups, depending on a stage of a diabetic retinopathy. The patients underwent a complex of examinations: along with traditional methods, optical coherence tomography, fluorescence angiography of the fundus, multifocal electroretinography, determination of the content of VEGF-Aand cytokines in serum were used. Results. According to ОСТ of a retina and a visometry there are differences in efficiency of treatment depending on a condition balance of cytokine. Conclusion. The use of the intrauretic implant "Ozurdex" was more effective in patients with DMO in the stage of p re-pro I iterative diabetic retinopathy and in patients resistant to anti-VEGF therapy.

Objective: to develop algorithms of processing of video images of optical slices of the eye retina to quantify the degree of folding of the epiretinal membranes and of the central fossa. Material and methods. The object of the study was the video image of the retina obtained by optical coherence tomography. To develop methods of determining the degree of folding epiretinal membrane was formed mathematical model of the profile consisting of a base profile (low frequency component) and folding (high frequency part). Results. There had been developed two alternative methods of estimation of folding epiretinal membrane: retinal-averaging method and the method using the wavelet transform. The algorithm of geometrical parameters of the central fossa: the height, width and line shape. These algorithms are implemented in a software system. Conclusion. The practical application of the developed system showed its adequacy, as well as an introduction into medical practice the use of quantitative estimates of some parameters of the retina condition.
