Sudden blurry vision

central serous retinopathy

Central serous retinopathy is a condition characterized by sudden onset central blurry or distorted vision.  It is caused by fluid that accumulates in the back of the eye, at the central macula.  No one really is sure of the cause, but it is most common in males in their 30′s to 40′s under higher amounts of stress.  Your eye doctor can diagnose this with an OCT or using fluorescein angiography.  Many cases resolve under close supervision or, in some instances, with laser treatment.  In many cases, 20/20 acuity is restored but some individuals may report a mild decrease in vision for many months after the fluid has decreased.
