Cystoid macular oedema is a well-known complication of cataract surgery associated with intraocular lens decentration or dislocation. A 55-year-old man, who had undergone a phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation surgery two months previously was referred because of reduced vision in the right eye. Ocular examination revealed that one of the haptics had perforated the iris at 6 o'clock. There was cystoid macular oedema of the right eye. A topical non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug, followed by intravitreal injections did not produce a significant regression. Finally, the haptic was repositioned surgically and the macular oedema dramatically resolved. Correct placement of the intraocular lens might avoid post-operative complications including cystoid macular oedema.

Multifocal intraocular lenses (MIOLs) provide enhanced far and near visual acuity, but they can bring about halos and glare, which are caused by design deficiencies of the IOLs. Compared t...
Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease.
