Diabetic maculopathy is a condition that occurs when the macula, the part of the eye which provides us with our central vision is damaged.
The macula is responsible for fine vision (reading, writing, watching television, and recognising faces). Patients with diabetes may develop macular oedema (swelling of the retina) due to leaking of fluid from blood vessels. This causes the vision to become blurred.
There are several treatment options, which will be recommended by your doctor based on your condition.
