Central serous chorioretinopathy is a common cause of visual morbidity. It is characterized by idiopathic serous retinal detachment in macular or paramacular regions. The symptoms of the CSC include decreased vision, micropsia and metamorphopsia. The prognosis of the disease is good and almost 90 of patients obtain visual recovery in a few months. However, in less than 5 of patients the chronic disease with poor prognosis is developed. The acceptable approach is to observe patients with acute central serous chorioretinopathy, because central serous chorioretinopathy is self-limited. The pathophysiology of central serous chorioretinopathy is not clear and not well understood. Therefore, various medical treatments have been suggested such as propranolol, indomethacin, bevacizumab, acetazolamide, mifepristone, labetalol, etc. However, wait and watch would be the most recommended management of the central serous chorioretinopathy.
