Persistent blurriness, for one. This is how to spot the signs of diabetic macular edema.
Frank Siringo, M.D., O.D., chief of vitreoretinal diseases and surgery at Omni Eye Specialists in Denver, explains the symptoms of diabetic macular edema, which includes persistent blurriness or vision loss in one or both eyes.
With DME, patients are very clear that one eye all of a sudden became blurry and is staying blurry. Day or night, weekend or during the week, no matter what visual activity they're doing, that one eye is just constantly blurry. That is usually a sign of DME.
