Macular edema is the swelling of the macula, which is the center part of the retina that gives us sharp reading vision. The accumulation of fluid causes visual distortion and blurred vision. There are various causes for macular edema, including diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion, uveitis (inflammation), age-related macular degeneration and ocular surgery.
