Gopalakrishnan, "Characterization of macular choroidal thickness in ischemic and nonischemic diabetic maculopathy," Retina, vol.
There were 135 eyes of diabetic maculopathy (29.03%); the main manifestation was macular edema and macular ischemia.
Study patients with various stages of diabetic retinopathy were divided into two groups: Group 1 includes mild and moderate NPDR and Group 2 includes severe NPDR, very severe NPDR, early PDR, high-risk PDR and diabetic maculopathy. The available data in the two groups showed a statistically significant correlation between severity of retinopathy with incidence of nephropathy and retinopathy with incidence of neuropathy with a 'p'- value, p less than 0.0001 (Table 3).
If the central part of the retina (i.e., the macula) is involved, it is referred to as diabetic maculopathy. This is the most common cause of vision impairment in individuals with diabetic retinopathy [1].
As regards diabetic maculopathy, only eyes with clinically significant macular oedema (CSME) were recorded, and it was defined as one or more of the following: Any retinal thickening within 500 mm of the center of the macula, with or without loss of retinal transparency; hard exudates associated with retinal thickening within 500 mm of the center of the macula; or one disc area of thickening within one disc diameter of the center of the macula.
Coscas, "Optical coherence tomography angiography in diabetic maculopathy," Developments in Ophthalmology, vol.
The study showed that prevalence of proliferative diabetic retinopathy was 6.96% and diabetic maculopathy 6.81%.
Two main reasons for visual loss in diabetic patients are diabetic maculopathy and complications associated with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR).1,2
GP graders identified diabetic maculopathy in 5.6% of screening episodes, with all cases detected in 2014.
If exudates are noted within one disc diameter of the macula, the patient is classified as having diabetic maculopathy and referral is required for hospital follow up.
