Diabetic Macular Edema DME

DME and DR in DME

Diabetic Retinopathy happens when too much blood sugar (glucose) damages the blood vessels in the retina. Diabetic Macular Edema is a complication of DR. In DME, the macula swells with fluid leaked from the damaged blood vessels.

Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration AMD

Wet AMD

Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration occurs when abnormal blood vessels grow under the macula while also leaking blood and fluid. This damages and scars the macula.

Macular Edema following Retinal Vein Occlusion MEfRVO

MEfRVO

Macular Edema following Retinal Vein Occlusion (MEfRVO) occurs when a blood vessel in the retina becomes blocked by a blood clot and leaks fluid into the macula. Vision loss or blurring happens as the macula swells with the fluid.
