Central Serous Chorio-Retinopathy

What is Central Serous Chorio-Retinopathy (CSCR)?

In central serous chorio-retinopathy (CSCR), some fluid collects within the central retina (macula). Because of the fluid, you may see a relatively black patch or blurred vision and/or distortion of images. Straight lines will appear bent and objects may appear smaller or larger than they are. Some vision loss can occur.

What are the risk factors for developing CSCR?

CSCR is typically a condition in younger adults. Most cases occur between the ages of 25 and 45 years old. High levels of stress, use of steroids for various ailments (arthritis, asthma, skin allergies or organ transplant), use of adrenaline type products, and pregnancy are risk factors for CSCR to occur.

What is the treatment for CSCR?

Various medical and laser treatments can be used to quicken recovery and reduce the risk of recurrence.
