Central serous retinopathy: sudden loss of vision
Hi, I am 38 years old. Two days back I have suddenly discovered that I cannot see anything using my left eye. My vision was completely blurred. I rushed to hospital to see a doctor and there I have undergone optical coherence tomography. The doctor advised that I am suffering from central serous retinopathy. I have no clue about it and never heard also. Can anyone comment on this disease.
@Kevin Central serous retinopathy is a medical condition where fluid builds up behind the retina in the eye. It can cause sudden or gradual vision loss as the central retina detaches. This central area is called the macula.
Blurry vision is a common symptom. A person may also notice that the area around their central vision starts to darken or becomes blurry. In most cases, the vision issue is limited to one eye. It is possible that a person may develop the condition in each eye at separate points throughout their life.
Additional symptoms of central serous retinopathy may include:
objects appear farther away
whites may appear duller
lines appear crooked
a dark spot in the center of vision
