Abstract

Data are presented from 27 patients (34 eyes) with central serous choroidopathy who were followed up for an average of 23 months without therapeutic intervention. The detachment completely resolved in all cases. The average duration of detachment was three months. In all eyes, the visual acuity returned to 20/40 or better, and in all but two eyes, the final visual acuity was 20/30 or better. Central serous choroidopathy is essentially a benign and self-limited disorder, and treatment by photocoagulation is seldom needed.
