I was diagnosed as having a CSR (Central Serous Retinopothy) by an opthamologist. Basically, its a blister on the retina. It is not in the center of my vision, but rather off to the left side of my left eye. It went away for about 2-3 weeks and spontaneously returned. Now, its almost gone again. I'm just curious if anyone else has these and if recurrences are of the norm...
My brother has had your condition for 2 to 3 years. He said it was like having a gray balloon in your eye and trying to look through that balloon. Most cases don't last as long as his. There doesn't seem to be much research going on at the present time for this condition. Please let me know if you run across any news regarding this. I hope yours gets better soon.
My husband has been diagnosed with CSR. He has had no change though in the blurriness for the last 4weeks. The doctor said he has scarring where he has had this in the past, but not known it because it didnt affect his vision. I am not sure if he will need laser surgery or not. Does anyone know anymore about this and why it would keep happening. He is not a stressful person as they say that is who usually gets this- any insight would be appreciated. THanks!
I was diagnosed with Optical Neuritis in the summer of 2001. I was on massive IV steroids for 2 weeks and then the pills. After 3 days of IV treatment, I awoke with blindness in the right eye and partial sight in the left. After 2 days, I was diagnosed with CSR in both eyes. After fumbling around with 1 retina doctor (who performed surgery on my right eye), I transferred to a very reputable specialist. It took nearly 6 months for all to settle down (major damage was done). During this time, the specialist researched my case and told me that the "concentrated treatment" of steroids was the main cause of the CSR. So of course, now when I get the Neuritis, I cannot take the meds to take care of it and the CSR pops up (smaller blisters and shorter length of duration). So now both are linked (and I get tested every year for MS and do not have it). Strange I know....but CSR can be diagnosed in both eyes...and there are numerous reasons for getting this (Neuritis, MS, etc) - besides stress. In my case, the neuritis triggers the CSR. Anyone else have the 2 together?
