Macular Edema

Macular edema is frequently treated with laser. Research studies have shown that laser treatment results in the rate of significant visual loss when compared to those who did not receive laser. Unfortunately, most patients treated with laser do not gain significant vision. To improve visual outcomes, retinal specialists have been injecting medications into the vitreous cavity to target macular edema. In certain cases, vitrectomy surgery may be recommended to treat specific causes of macular edema.
