I have a bias for involving a retinal specialist since they spend their entire days looking for subtle retinal problems. When a patient of mine stops by with a new PVD I usually suggest that they see a retinal specialist in a couple of weeks for their final check. If they instead return to me for scheduling reasons, I usually leave it at that and call it done. After seeing three different eye doctors, it is unlikely that a retinal specialist would find any new problems so odds are you are fine. Having said that, if you don’t want to count on the odds, there is a stronger sense of closure when you see the highest authority on a subject, like a retinal specialist.
Topical ocular administration of % dexamethasone ( mg/kg/day) on gestational days 10 to 13 produced embryofetal lethality and a high incidence of cleft palate in mice. A dose of mg/kg/day in the mouse is approximately 3 times an Ozurdex ® injection in humans ( mg dexamethasone) on a mg/m2 basis. In rabbits, topical ocular administration of % dexamethasone throughout organogenesis ( mg/kg/day, on gestational day 6 followed by mg/kg/day on gestational days 7-18) produced intestinal anomalies, intestinal aplasia, gastroschisis and hypoplastic kidneys. A dose of mg/kg/day in the rabbit is approximately 4 times an Ozurdex ® injection in humans ( mg dexamethasone) on a mg/m2 basis.
