Central Serous Chorioretinopathy affects the macula (the central vision area of the retina at the back of the eye). The macula allows you to see fine details clearly and do things such as reading and driving. This disorder is due to a small defect or blister in the retinal pigment epithelium (a single layer of cells normally separating the retina and the choroid) therefore allowing fluid from the choroid to accumulate under the retina and cause a serous retinal detachment leading to blurry and distorted central vision, decreased contrast and night vision. This disorder typically affects men between 25 and 45 years of age although younger or older men or women can also develop the disease.
