Customer: Yes
Dr. A.S. Desai :

CSR can occur in those with type A personality

Dr. A.S. Desai :

It affects those with stressful life.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Most of the cases are self limiting and heal spontaneously.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Treatment does not assure a speedy recovery.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

However a flourescein angiography can show the exact site of leakage in the retina. If the leak is much further away from the centre of the retina , then laser can be given to seal it. Since spontaneous recovery is seen in most cases, treatment is not considered usually.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

In most cases visual recovery is good except in those with central leak.

Do you have any more questions to ask?

Customer: Will the lack of light sensitive resolve what percent recover for all of this if you needed to say and thank you so much,
Dr. A.S. Desai :

I would say about 80 to 90 % patients get a fairly good visual recovery.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

The best option for you would be to take less stress, give some time for spontaneous recovery.

Customer: how long is recovery timing enteral.
Customer: generag recovery time
Dr. A.S. Desai :

It can vary from 3 weeks to 6 months.

is having a central leak rare ? and would a person know this themselves without a doctor doing an angiogram to the eye? Do central leaks occour what percentage of time, will they heal also or will vision always be messed up?

Hello David,
Central leak is quite a common presentation of CSR. In majority of the cases they heal well . This can only be detected by an ophthalmologist after fluorescein angiography.
Best wishes and regards
