Central serous retinopathy is a disease that causes temporary, but in some cases permanent, blurred vision. It commonly affects young to middle-aged men.
It usually affects one eye, but in rare cases both can be affected. The effects of central serous retinopathy are normally temporary and most patients recover good vision. Treatment can significantly speed up recovery.
Central serous retinopathy happens when fluid builds up under the retina— the part of your eye that converts light rays into electrical signals. These blister-like swellings can cause distorted vision.
