The systemic control of Diabetes is very important.Any other disease like hypertension and Kidney disease increases the recurrence of macular edema.
Intravitreal injections are the preferred mode of treatment in cystoid macular edema.
Can try other Intravitreal injections like Lucentis and Eylea if not responding to previous treatment.
Next Steps
Should get an Fundus Angiography done to role out ischaemic Maculopathy (Contraindication for intravitreal injection ) and to look for any leakages from vessels.
Health Tips
Blood sugar levels should not fluctuate widely  specially immediately before and after intravitreal injections
