Hi Dave, CSR or central serous retinopathy
is a condition where the retina detaches from the pigmented layer underneath. Similar to a blister.
Fluid is always being produced, but the pigmented layer is always pumping it out as well, keeping the retina attached. In CSR, there is usually a pinpoint area of leakage that causes and imbalance of this fluid building and pumping, resulting this a blister-like appearance.
The fluorescein will identify this pinpoint area of leakage. Early on, the treatment is usually observation since many of these will resolve by themselves.
If it lasts longer then 1-2 months, your ophthalmologist
may consider laser. At that time, it is important to know where the pinpoint leakage is to apply the laser. There are also injections of medicines that can be injectly directly into the eye. It depends on the doctor on how he would want to proceed.
The drops can help, but many people, it can resolve even without eye drops.
