Default Doctor My Eyes ...

It's an irony in a way - because of having Type 1 Diabetes I have 3 appointments a year where I get a good analysis of my retinas - fortunately for me I don;t have any serious issues caused by my diabetes but I do have a strange thing going on that my doctor said he's seen before with some of his other patients that may or may not have any implications to my site. What is it?

Central Serous Chorioretinopathy. Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSR)

It came up on my retinal scan about 13 years ago - after a serious car accident and it's been sitting there ever sense. I asked him the cause for such a thing and he said he didn't know but that it was unlikely diabetes related as some of his non diabetic patients have the same thing.

I would never know I had such thing if it wasn't for my retinal scan - something new to worry about? I'll try not worrying as it won;t make it go away.

Anyone else heard tell of Central Serous Chorioretinopathy. Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSR)

My eye doctor hasn't mentioned it when he talks about what uncontrolled diabetes can do to the eyes. I might have to ask him about it next appointment. What little I read tonight sounds like it could be totally unrelated to an eye injury or diabetes.

Think I've had this since 2003. Told I was Type 2 lean on 2/13/12.

I haven't heard of it either. I had my first retinal scan recently. The doctor said that my optic nerve was larger than expected. They weren't sure if it was normal for me or if it indicated a problem. They did a scan to have a baseline for the future.
