Your support of Sydney Eye Hospital Foundation has helped fund a clinical study by Professor Mark Gillies that could help save the sight of millions. Diabetic macular edema, or DME, can be a devastating condition for people with diabetes around the world, causing complete loss of sight if it’s left untreated. It’s caused when fluid builds up because of leaking blood vessels in the macula – a small but very important area at the back of the eyeball.
