HIGH RISK PATIENTS FOR PSEUDOPHAKIC CME

Prior retinal vein occlusion associated with increased risk of pseudophakic CME

Patients with a history of retinal vein occlusion, epiretinal membrane or prostaglandin use may have an increased risk of pseudophakic cystoid macular edema, according to a study by Massachusetts researchers. However, "patients did not have an increased risk for CME when treated with prophylactic postoperative NSAIDs for 3 months," the authors said.
