Cystoid Macular Edema (CME)
Cystoid macular edema (CME) is a pathological condition where cysts form in the area of central vision causing retinal inflammation.  Distorted or blurred vision is a common symptom of CME, while the periphery is not affected by this disorder.  The decreased vision associated with CME is usually temporary; however, it may become permanent.

The exact causes for CME are unknown, but it frequently occurs following cataract surgery. Treatment options may include anti-inflammatory drugs such as steroids, laser or vitrectomy surgery.
