Central Serous Retinopathy

Central Serous Retinopathy

Central serous retinopathy refers to the following situation: underneath the retina, the accumulated fluid affects the central macula, causing blurred vision or vision impairment.

The common symptoms may include: micropsia vision, distorted vision, central scotoma, increasing hyperopia. The symptoms normally disappear within several weeks. However, some patients may have recurrences.

Central serous retinopathy is often due to pigment epithelium leakage. The real cause is unknown. But extreme stress, or using steroid seem to be the high risk factors. Fluorescein angiography can be used to effectively identify the leakage points.
