Case 57,
macular oedema & high blood pressure

David Kinshuck

 

macular oedema...is this realted to high blood pressure?

macular oedema

no ischaemia

There are no retinal haemorrhages, and no obvious ischaemia. There is extensive laser, perhaps heavier than ideal. Is the high blood pressure the cause of the oedema?  enlarge.  The oedema might be'solid' and hence not get any worse and not represent actual leakage, but previous leakage. In 2020 much lighter laser would have been used.
