Prior to the development of the ophthalmoscope, macular oedema remained mostly unknown. Macular oedema is caused by fluid buildup in the retinal layers around the fovea. It causes vision loss by changing the functional cell connection in the retina and stimulating an inflammatory reparative response. The clinical profile, aetiology, and varied types of Macular Oedema are hence the focus of research, and also to investigate the aetiology of macular oedema as well as the various forms of macular oedema in patients attending Krishna Hospital in Karad. The male to female ratio among the 60 participants was 2.53:1. Macular oedema is the major cause for loss in vision which is common vitreo retinal diseases, with diabetes being the most prevalent cause (35% of cases) in our study. Its early detection and treatment are critical for preventing blindness. It is consequently critical to understand the aetiology, pattern, and chronicity of macular oedema in order to customize treatment and monitor response to it.
