There are many causes of macular edema. It is frequently associated with diabetes orpost surgery (cataract surgery) or occlusion blood vessel supplying retina where damaged blood vessels in the retina begin to leak fluids, including small amounts of blood, into the retina. Sometimes deposits of fats may leak inside the retina. This leakage causes the macula to swell.Management (medication or laser etc) depends on the cause.I suggest you to get and ophthalmologist's opinion.Option in ayurveda are meager and not as advanced.Hope this helps.Take care.
