A 55-year-old female presented with blurring of vision in the left eye. She was a known case of diabetes and had undergone macular hole surgery in the same eye 6 months back (sequelae of clinically significant macular edema (CSME)). In diabetic retinopathy with macular edema, macular holes may develop because of intraretinal exudation combined with increased vitreomacular attachments and tractions.
On examination, her best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 4/60 in the left eye. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) macula showed a large CSME measuring 1339 μm × 2554 μm [Figure 1].
This type of a large CSME in a vitrectomized eye with history of internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling is rare. A recent onset of uncontrolled diabetes might have contributed to this.
