Cystoid Macular Edema

This condition is characterized by swelling (edema) in the macula as a result of pockets of fluid that accumulate as a result of inflammation or mechanical traction. Blurry or wavy vision can result. Cystoid macular edema occurs in a small percentage of people who have had cataract surgery (usually within two to eight weeks), as well as in people with diabetic retinopathy, uveitis and retinal vascular disease. 

How is cystoid macula edema treated?

The retina specialist may treat the disorder with anti-inflammatory medicines to relieve the swelling, intraocular injections, laser treatment or occasionally, surgery.
