Symptoms of Macular Edema

As it is developing, macular edema is often painless and you may notice few symptoms—or none at all. Symptoms that may indicate that the blood vessels in your eye are leaking include central vision that is wavy or blurry and the sensation that colors look different than usual or are "washed out."

If you notice any of these symptoms, you should contact Retina Vitreous Associates right away; if left untreated, macular edema can cause severe vision loss, and even blindness.
