    Purpose: To specify the risk factors for pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (CME) in patients with diabetes. Setting: Kymenlaakso Central Hospital, Unit of Ophthalmology, Kotka, Finland. Design: Prospective case series. Methods: Patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes having routine cataract surgery were evaluated. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography imaging was performed before surgery and 1 month postoperatively. Results: The study comprised 93 patients (95 eyes). The central retinal thickness increase was 9.7 mu m 1.7 (SEM) in diabetic patients with no retinopathy, 22.7 +/- 8.6 mu m in those who had nonproliferative retinopathy, and 73.8 +/- 37.4 mu m in those who had proliferative retinopathy (P Conclusions: Young patient age and poor glycemic control were risk factors for postoperative central retinal thickness increase. This study showed it is necessary to identify, effectively treat, and followup with patients with diabetes who are at a greater risk for pseudophakic CME. (C) 2017 ASCRS and ESCRS
