Diabetic Macular Edema: When to Treat and When to Observe
Return to Session
Dr. Jorge Arroyo, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center-HMS (Presenter)
The treatment strategies for diabetic macular edema include observation, focal argon/micropulse laser, intravitreal injection of anti-VEGF drugs, pneumatic vitreolysis/enzymatic vitreolysis, and pars plana vitrectomy with membrane peeling. Clinicians should be alert for other clinical entities such as vitreomacular traction and retinal arteriolar macroaneurysms which can mimic and/or exacerbate diabetic macular edema.
