Diabetic macular edema

Hi, I'm new here, so this is my first post. I had a vitrectomy done in my right eye on Jan 22, and about 3 or 4 weeks later, the surgeon said I have swelling from leakage in my right eye. He didn't make a connection between the surgery (I also had cataract surgery on the same eye on Jan 7) and the swelling. But an article I read online said it often happens as a result of cataract surgery. All that being said, the steroid drops I've been on to treat it for the past week and a half don't appear to be working, because my vision in that eye is even more blurry now. My opthamologist said I can continue using the drops and just wait for my followup appt with him, but I'm starting to think I need to hurry up and have laser or something to fix this. I can't see how to drive because of this, and I don't want it to get any worse. Any thoughts, any of you have this problem? Thanks,

Linda
