Cystoid Macular Edema (CME)
Cystoid macular edema (CME) is a condition characterized by the presence of accumulated fluid and swelling in the macula. These fluids typically form together to create a cyst-like pattern. CME can be caused by a wide range of factors, including cataract surgery. Treatment options may include medicated eye drops, anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) injections, or laser therapy. Treatment will ultimately be determined by whatever is causing CME to occur.
