Question:
What kind of an exam is given for a chorioretinal scar?

Answer:
A chorioretinal scar requires a comprehensive eye exam with dilation of the pupil. It may also require imaging of the eye such as pictures, fluorescein or indocyanine green angiography, optical coherence tomography, ultrasound or even x-rays. There are many potential causes of a chorioretinal scar, some of which are completely benign and others which may be a sign of significant disease.
