What is Central Serous Chorioretinopathy
Central serous chorioretinopathy is when fluid builds up under the retina. This can distort vision. The fluid leakage comes from a layer of tissue under the retina, called the choroid. The layer of cells between retina and choroid is called the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). When RPE does not work as it should, fluid builds up under the retina or the RPE resulting in a small detachment and visual distortion.
Central serous chorioretinopathy usually affects just one eye at a time, but both eyes can be affected at the same time.
