What is Central serous retinopathy (CSR)?

Central serous retinopathy (CSR), which is also called central serous chorioretinopathy, affects the central area of your retina or macula. CSR can cause your vision to be blurry and distorted due to fluid collecting underneath your macula.

The condition usually occurs in one eye and can affect both men and women; however, it tends to occur more in men. For the majority of people, CSR will resolve on its own without any treatment.

More information can be found our central serous retinopathy (CSR) web page.

We also have a central serous retinopathy (CSR) factsheet:
