Other macular conditions

Diabetic macular oedema is the most common cause of sight loss in diabetics.

In CSR the macula becomes separated from the eye tissue behind it, and fluid builds up in the space created.

Macular holes affects around 3 in 1,000 people over the age of 55 and are more common in women than men.

Myopic maculopathy causes similar symptoms to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), but at a younger age.

Punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) is a rare condition caused by inflammation at the back of the eye.

Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is one of the most common causes of sudden, painless, unilateral (affecting one eye) loss of vision.
