• Does macular edema mean your dry AMD progressed to wet AMD?


    If you have dry macular degeneration and you get macular edema, is this a sign that it has progressed to the more serious wet macular degeneration?


    Macular edema means that there is fluid in or swelling of the retina. One of the causes of macular edema is wet macular degeneration, but there are a number of other potential conditions that could lead to this finding. Your ophthalmologist or retinal specialist will be able to explain what your particular finding means.
