False regarding cystoid macular edema is: (LQ)
|A||Fluoresce in angiography is diagnostic|
|B||Visual prognosis is poor|
|C||May develop after cataract extraction|
|D||It is more common after intracapsular lens extraction|
1. Macular edema is probably the most common immediate / early complication of cataract extraction Q and occurs in 50% of cases.
2. It is usually a transient condition and seldom causes any significant problem.
3. Cystoid macular edema after eataract surgary is called (Irvine-Gass syndrome) Q
4. This complication is more common following vitreous loss and less common after extracapsular extraction (intact capsule) as compared to intracapsular extraction.
5. Fluorescein angiography is diagnostic which typically shows "flower petal pattern" Qdue to leakage of dye from parafoveal capillaries.
6. Most cases resolve spontaneously within 6 months and require no specific treatment.
