Central Serous Retinopathy

Central Serous Retinopathy (CSR) is a pathological condition where a blister-like elevation occurs in the center area of vision (macula).  Small breaks in the cell layer outside the retina allows fluid to leak into the macula resulting in distorted or blurred vision.

A fluorescein angiogram (dye test) may be used to confirm the diagnosis.  In some cases, a smokestack shape will
appear.  While the cause is unknown, most patients regain vision within several months.
