What is Central Serous Retinopathy?

Central Serous Retinopathy is a condition caused by an accumulation of fluid beneath the center of the retina, known as the macula.

The retina is the nerve tissue that lines the back wall of the eye. Much like the film in a camera, the retina is sensitive to light. It transforms light energy to nerve stimuli, and "sends a picture" through the optic nerve to the brain. The macula Is the part of the retina that provides for sharp clear color vision. Our ability to read and to see fine detail depends upon the health of the macula. The collection of fluid beneath the macula can interfere with its function.
