Anterior chamber dislocation of an Ozurdex (Allergan plc, Dublin, Ireland) implant from the vitreous cavity is unusual. The risk factors for dexamethasone implant migration into the anterior chamber include a defective posterior lens capsule, aphakia, and a prior history of pars plana vitrectomy. Presently described is a case of corneal toxicity occurring after the migration of a dexamethasone implant into the anterior chamber.

Keywords: Anterior migration, corneal edema, cystoid macular edema, dexamethasone implant.
