Macular edema is the build-up of fluid in the macula, an area in the center of the retina. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye and the macula is the part of the retina responsible for sharp, straight-ahead vision. Fluid buildup causes the macula to swell and thicken, which distorts vision. Laser photocoagulation. As noted above, laser photocoagulation had been the mainstay of treatment for DME for almost for the past 25 years, since the publication of photocoagulation results from the ETDRS. ... Corticosteroids. ... Anti-VEGF therapy.

Retinal haemorrhage is a disorder of the eye in which bleeding occurs into the retina. The retina is a thin disc-shaped layer of light-sensitive tissue on the back wall of the eye. Its job is to translate what we see into neural impulses and send them. To the brain via the optic nerve. A retinal haemorrhage can be caused by, retinal vein occlusion (a blockage of a retinal vein), or diabetes mellitus (which causes small fragile blood vessels to form, which are easily damaged). Retinal haemorrhage can also occur due to shaking, particularly in young infants (shaken baby syndrome) or from severe blows to the head. And impairment of vision. Retinal haemorrhage and gradually loss of vision will be cured from daily one dose early in the morning for a week and if you fail to get the result in a month then again repeat this medicine after a month for 7 days. I cured no. Of cases by this medicine only…. Vit. B complex medication with cyanocobalamin supplement helps draining the clotted blood inside retina.

I am 77 years recently diagnosed for a m d of both eyes. Wet type. What are the treatment available & how far it is successful?

Treatment options include one or more of the following 1. Intravitreal injections (bevacizumab, ranibizumab) 2. Photodynamic therapy 3. Laser photocoagulation of the new vessels success will be based on location, size and duration of disease. The closer to the fovea (most sensitive part of the retina) is is poorer will be the response to therapy. Bigger size and longer duration are also poor prognostic factors.

Currently, there is no cure for DME. However there are effective treatments available. These include anti-VEGF-A and anti-angiogenic treatments that attack factors that contribute to DME, focal laser photocoagulation which stabilizes vision, vitrectomy, a procedure that helps improve visual acuity, and corticosteroid therapy that works by targeting different mechanisms of the disease.

What is a cornea vascular beads and what you suggest for a person suffering from it?
Corneal neovascularization (new blood vessels growing onto the cornea) is most commonly caused by contact lenses. Other common causes include an inflammation of the eyelids, called blepharitis, or a localized skin condition, called rosacea. Treatment of corneal neovascularization depends on the severity of the condition and the cause. Corticosteroids may be prescribed to reduce vascularization. Surgical options include laser photocoagulation. Reduction or temporary cessation of contact lens wear time may be necessary to allow the tissues to heal.
