Diabetic Macular Edema

The condition involving accumulation of liquid in the macula is termed as Diabetic Macular Edema. Macula is a portion of the retina that controls point by point vision capacities because of spilling veins. In order to develop DME, you should first have diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a sickness that harms the veins in the retina, bringing about vision disability. Left untreated, these veins start to develop pressure in the eye and release liquid, causing DME. DME is of two types: Focal DME and Diffuse DME. Focal DME occurs due to abnormalities in retinal blood vessels, whereas, Diffuse DME occurs due to swelling of retinal capillaries.
