Central Serous Chorioretinopathy discusses the mechanisms, pathogenesis and risk factors of CSCR, 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. 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.

Key Features

  • Summarizes the clinical understanding of CSCR
  • Explores pathogenesis, molecular mechanisms and risk factors
  • Compares angiography, tomography and additional imaging modalities
  • Identifies the best treatment practices
  • Discusses new laser, photodynamic and oral medication treatments, along with translational research into potential new treatments


Researchers and clinical practitioners in sensory systems (vision), Ophthalmologists, retina specialists and surgeons
