STUDY AREAS/SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH – Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR)


CENTRAL SEROUS CHORIORETINOPATHY (CSCR) is an eye disorder directly associated with stress. It mostly affects people who have a hyperactive personality, or who are very competitive or exposed to prolonged stress. Particularly introverted individuals, who have personality disorders and tend to isolate themselves from social relationships, also seem to be susceptible to CSCR.

Some risk factors: emotional and physical stress, high levels of blood cortisol.

The people most affected are male and aged between 25 and 55 years. When you find it in women it is usually the result of cortisol-based therapies or conditions that increase blood cortisol.

Central serous chorioretinopathy is usually not a serious disease that can cause great concern for those who suffer from it. It is characterised by the presence of foci of inflammation on the surface of the retina.

In CSCR a collection of fluid appears below the central portion of the retina (macula) without there being associated chorioretinal diseases. The symptoms involve blurred vision, presence of central dots, distorted images.

The condition can disappear spontaneously in 2-4 months with complete recovery of sight. It can however relapse and become chronic.
