Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) is a common disorder across the world with a variable prognosis without any standard of care. Recently, advancements in imaging have led to a better understanding of the pathogenesis and mechanisms of this disease. At the same time, there have been many new treatment modalities that are being used for this disease including micropulse laser and oral medications. Central Serous Chorioretinopathy discusses the mechanisms, pathogenesis and risk factors, of CSCR, imaging findings on various imaging modalities, available treatment options and translational research into new treatment options for CSCR management. This comprehensive book is written for retina specialists and surgeons, researchers and clinical practitioners in sensory systems (vision) and Ophthalmologists
  • Summarizes the clinical understanding of CSCR
  • Explores the pathogenesis, molecular mechanisms and risk factors
  • Compares angiography, tomography, and additional imaging modalities
  • Identifies best treatment practices
  • Discusses new laser, photodynamic, and oral medication treatments as well as translational research into potential new treatments
