WHAT IS DME/DR IN DME?

WHAT IS WET AMD?

WHAT IS RVO?

Diabetic Macular Edema DME
Wet Age-related Macular Degeneration AMD
Macular Edema following Retinal Vein Occlusion MEfRVO

DR is the most common eye problem caused by diabetes, and DME is a complication of DR. Both are serious conditions that can cause vision problems.

Wet AMD is the leading cause of vision loss among people 50 years of age and older in the United States.

RVO (Retinal Vein Occlusion) occurs when a blood vessel in the retina becomes blocked, often by a blood clot. This blockage can cause fluid to leak into the macula, which can cause vision loss or blurring.
