Macular oedema is an eye disease that causes accumulation of fluid in the macula, the part of the eye responsible for providing clear and sharp vision. It is a very sensitive and important area of the eye and when this fluid accumulation occurs vision is lost and the way objects are observed is distorted. It can affect just certain parts of the eye or the whole macular area. It is a condition mostly associated with diabetic patients. Treatment is to seal fluid leaks in the macula, which can be done by laser surgery or therapy intraocular injections. Both techniques provide very good results.
