Abstract

The presentation recounts the original description of CME and the more recent developments associated with intravenous fluorescein angiography in its study and diagnosis. The work of previous authors to show the incidence of CME and its possible prognosis are reviewed. These findings in a retrospective study agree with the other authors and show that there is no particular increase in CME following intraocular lens implantation regardless of the type of surgical procedure used. It is established that vitreous loss does increase the incidence of CME. A prospective study with routine intravenous fluorescein at six weeks is presented and shows an incidence that is below that found by other authors when it was performed following routine intracapsular cataract extraction.
