I have central serous chorioretinopathy
I had the FA---Fluorescein angiography. It is a test which allows the blood vessels in the back of the eye to be photographed as a fluorescent dye is injected into the bloodstream via your hand or arm. YAY it took THREE sticks to get a vein that would take the dye. It showed three leaks in my retina. One is quite large and two are smaller, one being very close to the macula. According to the FA, my left eye, at some point, had a small one. there is a scar that shows it. It must've been pretty small cuz I didn't note the vision problem.
I go back to the retina specialist to check on the progress in two months. he told me most clear in 4-6 months. If not, then I have a couple of options. the largest leak can be lasered. and one other, maybe. the third is right next to the macula and so cannot be lasered. Lasering that close to the macula could damage the macula where I'd have a blinds spot and not be able to see detail. I would also have the option of having medications injected directly in the eye to repair them. HOLY CRAP, um having trouble seeing, and having a needle stuck in my eye..... damn... decisions, decisions.
He told me that stress and fight/flight cause this as does diabetes (which I don't have) and hypertension (which I don't have). Steroids also cause this. I did take prednisone last year for 5 days. Makes me wonder if that is when my left eye had this issue. At any rate, I can't use any type steroid again.
funny---- I was told that my urine will be BRIGHT YELLOW for the next day or so.
