Cystoid Macular Edema after Extracapsular Cataract Extraction Performed by Residents

Purpose: To determine the frequency and outcome of management of cystoid macular edema after extra capsular cataract extraction performed by residents. Study Design: Interventional case series. Place and Duration of Study: Lady Reading Hospital, MTI, Peshawar from Oct 2018 to Oct 2019. Material and Methods: Total 400 patients with mature cataract were included in our study. Patients having preexisting disease such as uveitis, hypertensive retinopathy, diabetic retinopathy and retinal degenerations were excluded. All surgeries were performed by 4th year residents under supervision. Complicated cases before or during surgery were excluded from the study. Cystoid macular edema cases were classified as follows; acute occurring within three months of cataract extraction and with duration fewer than 6 months, chronic persisting more than 6 months. Patients were either managed conservatively or with anti-VEGF. All cases were followed for 3 months or longer until resolution of cystoid macular edema.
