Cystoid Macular Edema Following Corneal-Relaxing Incisions

Arch Ophthalmol. 1987;105(1):70-72. doi:10.1001/archopht.1987.01060010076034

• We believe that this is the first report of cystoid macular edema following corneal-relaxing incisions. Both cases we describe occurred in pseudophakic eyes, one of which contained an ultraviolet light-absorbing intraocular lens. One case was complicated by a corneal perforation and postoperative inflammation. The other case had no apparent intraoperative or postoperative complications other than the cystoid macular edema. In both cases, the cystoid macular edema resolved after the institution of medical treatment, and visual acuity returned to preoperative levels.
