Do you have diabetes? If so, you may be at risk of DME, especially if you have had diabetes for a long time.
People with diabetes are at higher risk for certain eye conditions than people without diabetes. These include high intraocular pressure in the eye (glaucoma), cloudy lens (cataract), and problems with the light-sensitive tissue in the eye (the retina) that is responsible for vision.
