Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Alimera Sciences, Inc. (the "Registrant") issued a press release on May 5, 2011 (the "Press Release") regarding its results of operations and financial condition for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011. A copy of the Press Release was furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to the Registrant’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 5, 2011 (the "Initial 8-K Filing").

The Registrant is filing this Amendment No. 1 to the Initial 8-K Filing (this "Amendment") solely to correct a typographical error contained in the Press Release in the fifth paragraph under the heading "First Quarter 2011 Financial Results." Specifically, the first sentence of that paragraph should have read: "As of March 31, 2011, Alimera had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $50.0 million, compared to $54.8 million as of December 31, 2010."

Except as specifically described above, there are no changes or modifications to the Press Release or the Initial 8-K Filing, including the financial information reported therein. This Amendment does not modify or update any disclosures provided in the Press Release or the Initial 8-K Filing and, accordingly, does not reflect events occurring after the dissemination of the Press Release or the filing of the Initial 8-K Filing or modify any disclosures that may be affected by subsequent events.

The information hereunder shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act") or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
