Learn About Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

What is the definition of Central Serous Chorioretinopathy?
Central serous chorioretinopathy is a disease that causes fluid to build up under the retina, the back part of the inner eye that sends sight information to the brain. The fluid leaks from the choroid (the blood vessel layer under the retina). The cause of this condition is unknown but stress can be a risk factor. Signs and symptoms include dim and blurred blind spot in the center of vision, distortion of straight lines and seeing objects as smaller or farther away.

Choroidal Blood Flow in Acute and Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy

Summary: Patients with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) will be monitored with laser speckle flow graphy (LSFG), swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and SS-OCT angiography (SS-OCTA). We aim to unveil the flow and pulse wave characteristics of the choroidal circulation in acute CSC and chronic CSC.
