A 62-year-old female with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma underwent trabeculectomy followed by cataract surgery (lens removal with implantation of the scleral-fixated intraocular lens [SFIOL]) in the right eye. Postoperatively, her visual acuity was 6/60 with cystoid macular edema (central macular thickness was 948 μm), which was recalcitrant to topical steroids [Figure 1]a. She underwent intravitreal injection of dexamethasone implant (Ozurdex). Two weeks postinjection, the implant had migrated anteriorly between the iris and SFIOL [Figure 1]b, but the patient was asymptomatic. Two months later, her visual acuity improved to 6/12 with complete resolution of cystoid macular edema [Figure 1]c.{Figure 1}
