Central Serous Retinopathy (CSR) is a condition that affects the macula.
The exact causes that cause it are not known, but stress and emotional charge are sure predisposing and aggravating factors, as well as the use of corticosteroids.
The disease is more common in young and middle-aged men.

In its typical form, Central Serous Retinopathy (CSR) is manifested by sudden blurring of vision in one eye. The patient sees distorted, dark and colors faded. The deterioration of visual acuity is mild which is improved by the use of conventional glasses and the disease is reversed within a few months.

In the vesicular form of Central Serous Retinopathy (CSR), multiple serous detachments of the retina are accompanied by fluid collection under the macula and a marked decrease in visual acuity.

The application of photodynamic therapy, thermal laser or intraocular injections help in the course of the disease.
It is recommended systematic use of special glasses for a noticeable improvement in vision.
