Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The symptoms you mentioned are indeed quite leading to an abnormality in the retina of the eye called central serous chorioretinopathy or CSCR. CSCR can occur due to a buildup of fluid under the retina layer. This buildup of fluid causes the retina to detach from the underlying layer (choroid). This condition is more common in men than women, and generally occurs in people aged 30-50 years. The exact cause is unknown, but several risk factors identified include:
use of corticosteroid drugs
have a family that has a similar disorder (but there is no clear pattern of genetic inheritance)
people who are prone to stress and have aggressive and competitive personalities
have high blood pressure
Generally, the symptoms caused only appear occasionally, but can still be chronic (occur continuously) or can also be repeated.
To be able to confirm the diagnosis, you are advised to consult a eye doctor. Direct examination must be carried out into the retina while visual impairment is in progress to be able to confirm the diagnosis.
In most cases, this condition can resolve on its own within 1-2 months without any treatment. This disease will not cause death or blindness, but in a small number of people it can cause continuous visual impairment (if the accumulation of fluid does not disappear on its own). If vision problems occur continuously (the disease becomes chronic) or often recur, the doctor can recommend laser therapy or photodynamic therapy to overcome this problem. You should consult your ophthalmologist for further evaluation and treatment.
Meanwhile, identify whether you have certain risk factors that increase the likelihood of this condition, if yes, make modifications to these risk factors.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
