Central Serous Retinopathy (CSR) sometimes referred to as central serous choroidopathy, is an eye disease that causes visual impairment and usually occurs in one eye and is often temporary. Characterized by leakage of fluid under the retina, CSR has the propensity to accumulate under the central macula when active. Fluid leakage is believed to come from the choroid (a tissue layer with blood vessels under the retina). When tiny areas of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) become defective, fluid builds up and accumulates under the RPE – this causes a small detachment to form under the retina. CRE usually affects just one eye, but has the possibility of affecting both eyes.
