Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
since when have you started having CSR in both the eyes?
- have you been diagnosed with multiple CSR in left eye?
- what treatment has been advised to you for the large CSR?
No, they were able to see just the one in my right
Since my visual acuity has been improving they suggested I waited....
(one suggested Visudyne treatement)
are you on any other medicines like steroids for any allergies or any other problems?
any treatment for diabetes?
any history of gastritis?
No other medical conditions are present at the moment so no treatment
given your symptoms, it seems that you have a large CSR in your right eye and maybe multiple CSR in your left eye
usually CSR does not have a known cause
but in a case like yours, extra effort is done to try to determine the cause
I went the extra mile and had multiple MRIs, all clear....
the possible causes that are known are a type A personality (a tressful person), high levels of steroids in the body (if patient is on treatment taking stroids for any other disease), gastritis caused by H. pylori etc
stress is the commonest cause of CSR
if your CSR in left eye has resolved with time and your vision is improving in the right eye, there is a good chance that the CSR will resolve on its own
As far as I know the resolving period is 2-6 months....would you suggest having me tested for HLA - A29?
but if the CSR becomes resistent or does not improve further then treatment with laser therapy can be tried
but the decision for that will depend on your follow up with your treating doctor
How about the HLA-a29 testing....?
HLA-a29 is done in case of posterior uveitis
if you have been examined by 3 doctors then uveitis must have been ruled out
hope this information is helpful
