This answer was rated:

What is the treatment for Central Serous Retinopathy and why does it occur? thank you

Dr. PG :

hi

Dr. PG :

Are you there?

Dr. PG :

Central serous retinopathy is caused by collection of fluid from a small leak underneath the retina

Dr. PG :

this involves the central part of the retina called macula

Dr. PG :

usually there is no cause for CSR (Central serous retinopathy)

Dr. PG :

it is idiopathic i.e. occurs spontneously

Dr. PG :

there are some postulated causes which can contribute towards the occurence of CSR

Dr. PG :

stress is an important cause

Dr. PG :

other is diabetes

Dr. PG :

other rare causes are high levels of cortisol

Dr. PG :

ususally a CSR resolves spontaneously

Dr. PG :

no treatment is required

Dr. PG :

it might take 3-4 months

Dr. PG :

but if the leak still persists or if the CSR increases, then you might need laser photocoagulation to seal the leak

Dr. PG :

hi

Dr. PG :

do you need any more information?

Customer :

thank you for your reply, had an error on the page and couldn't accept. Had CSR on the way to fathers funeral it did recover in a few months without treatment so I would say this might have been caused by stress. Will it recur?
