Take a proactive approach to your vision
When living with diabetic macular edema (DME), it’s important to make sure you’re doing what you can to stay on track with your treatment plan. DME is a chronic condition, but it may be possible to manage.
Caring for your vision
After treatment, it’s important to regularly check your vision for changes. If you experience any of the following symptoms or develop any change in vision, call your doctor right away:
Increased light sensitivity
Light that has never bothered you before now bothers you.
These may look like moving spots in your field of vision that persist or worsen.
Pain in your eye
Decrease in vision
This could be a decrease in your ability to see or the appearance of a veil in front of your vision.
Redness on the white part of your eye
