What is Macular edema?
Macular edema is the build-up of fluid in the macula, an area in the center of the retina. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye and the macula is the part of the retina responsible for sharp, straight-ahead vision. Fluid buildup causes the macula to swell and thicken, which distorts vision.

Do not use Blue light (as the background color) better known as the “blue light hazard” risk, that will damage the macular. Because Blue light contributes about 90% of the risk of photochemical retinal damage from fluorescent lamps and sunlight. When the blue light is absorbed by retinal tissue it induces oxidative stress and causes the formation of indigestible debris which accumulates in the outer retina. The cumulative effect of chronic, sub-lethal
oxidative retinal stress and the accumulation of oxidative debris in the outer retina contribute to the development of AMD.
