Central Serous Retinopathy
Return to Conditions >>

 

  What is Central Serous Retinopathy?
This is when leakage of fluid occurs into the layer under the retina. It occurs more commonly in younger people, and is more common in men.

How are they caused?

Symptoms only generally occur if the fluid is in the region of the “macula”. This is the part of the retina responsible for fine detailed vision. Patients may experience blurred vision, kinks in straight lines - for example door frames and/or a central blind spot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is the treatment?

Your ophthalmologist may arrange specialist investigations such as an “OCT” or special angiogram. Most cases will get better without treatment and require observation only to ensure the fluid is reabsorbed. In those cases in which the leakage involves a larger area, or if the condition reoccurs, laser treatment may be required.
