My father 64 years old has edima in eyes. He has been through 2 doses of avastin and 3 doses of ozurdex in both left and right eye, still the edema comes back. What could be the reason? he is diabetic but blood sugar levels are very much under control. Protein loss through kidneys have also been tested and no such exists, please advice.

Have you got his hba1c checked. While sugar levels during tests may be normal this test gives an actual picture of whether sugar levels are really in control. Also not only sugar levels but also bp and lipid levels also must be under strict control.
