Question:
Is it possible to restore vision in the case of central serous retinopathy (or CSR, a build-up of fluid under the retina) if the optical coherence tomography scan shows thinning in the fovea (central area of the macula that produces the sharpest vision)?

Answer:
Retinal thinning is usually an indication of significant retinal damage, particularly if the outer retina is affected. That said, most people with CSR will have some visual recovery. Your ophthalmologist can talk with you about your particular condition and what you may expect.
