Summary: Broadly defined, macular edema is an abnormal thickening of the macula associated with the accumulation of fluid excess in the extracellular space of the neurosensory retina. Cystoid macular edema (CMO) is an important cause of reduced vision in many pathologic conditions such as inflammatory disorders, retinal vascular disease, diabetic retinopathy, retinal venous occlusion, macular telangiectasis, retinitis pigmentosa, intraocular surgery and others. Various treatment options are suggested, including topical corticosteroids, topical non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, systemic and topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, laser photocoagulation, vitrectomy and intravitreal drug injections. This paper reviews the use of different modern techniques in the macular edema management.
