Our Disability Lawyers Understand Macular Edema?
Macular edema refers to the presence of fluid and protein deposits on or under the central area of the retina, called the macula, causing it to thicken and swell. This part of your eye is what allows us to see things directly in our line of sight. If the swelling becomes severe, it can distort your central vision, meaning that only your peripheral vision is clear.
The two types of macular edema are diabetic macular edema (DME) and cystoid macular edema (CME). The symptoms and side effects of each of these is essentially the same. The main difference is that DME is related to diabetes while complex surgery accounts for most cases of CME, this condition also occasionally occurs after basic surgery. There are causes unrelated to surgery, but they are far less common.
