If there was a chance of harm your ophth. would not have given you that opinion. Dont worry keep your appointment and see what is found then. Good luck.

Macular edema in diabetics is not unique and many will have consistent findings for years without progressive loss of vision. Control of diabetes is paramount and additional therapeutic intervention is often unnecessary. Follow your doctor's advice. Do discuss if any of your current medications could cause macular edema, just to be safe.
