Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

Do you know the name of the pills your doctor gave you?

Dr. Rick :

What did the doctor find wrong with you during the exam?

Dr. Rick :

Were you examined by an ophthalmologist?

Dr. Rick :

Welcome to chat. Are you there?

Dr. Rick :

What do you mean by "light blurring"?

Dr. Rick :

How is your vision now?

JACUSTOMER-hsxqysx5- : Hi he did the exam. Vision was very good. But he said small leakage and swelling in retina. He gave me metoprolol and captopril. I was very nervous renal ultrasound next week. I asked him if I will b ok and if the blurring would go away he said yes once swelling comes down
Dr. Rick :

I am a retina specialist. Do you know if the doctors mentioned a condition called central serous chorioretinopathy, or CSR?

Dr. Rick :

Did you see my response and question above?

Dr. Rick :

Given your age and from what you have posted I believe CSR is most likely what it going on with your retina.

Dr. Rick :

Are you there?

Dr. Rick :

I guess you have stepped away from your computer.

Dr. Rick :

The good news? This usually resolves without any permanent vision loss in 3 months or so and it usually does not need any treatment.

Dr. Rick :

Here is a good webpage on this topic:

Dr. Rick :

We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
