How can swelling of the retina be managed?

Q: I am a 32 years old male who has developed swelling in the retina of both the eyes. I underwent two tests - OCT and angiography. Currently I am on acular drops. The doctor advised me to take it for six months for recovery and told me that in 10% cases, if the problem still persists, it has to be rectified by laser surgery. I am not able to view / read computer / letters and my work involves working on the computer. I am suffering from blurred vision. How can swelling of retina in both the eyes be managed?

A:This condition seems to me as CSR- Central Serous Retinopathy. This is a usually a self limiting condition and should get better whether you treat it or not. It may take up to 12 months to clear but laser treatment is not satisfactory either. The disease may leave behind a scar and / or small blind spot but laser may leave behind bigger scar / blind spot. Try to relax and avoid stress.
