Laser Treatment for Macular Edema Video

For macular edema, the laser is focused on the retina outside the center of the macula. The laser is not applied to the center of the macula, as this would reduce central vision. The main goal of treatment is to prevent more vision loss by sealing off leaking blood vessels that interfere with the proper function of the macula.
