    Optical coherence tomography of an 54-year-old female with diabetic macular edema affecting both eyes. Patient has a history of proliferative diabetic retinopathy s/p PRP/PPV/MP/EL, and glaucoma s/p tube shunt in both eyes. There has been a persistence of her macular edema and limited response to antiVEGF therapy, which puts into question whether there is another cause for her edema. Leading the possible causes is her renal insufficiency and fluid retention. Patient was seeing 20/50 in the right eye and 20/80 in the left eye.
