CYSTOID MACULAR EDEMA
Macular edema is swelling or thickening of the eye’s macula, the part of your eye responsible for detailed, central vision.
The macula is a very small area at the center of the retina—a thin layer of light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eye. Light rays are focused onto the retina, where they are transmitted to the brain and interpreted as the images you see. It is the macula that is responsible for your pinpoint vision, allowing you to read, sew or recognize a face.
