Question
My 56 year old brother is suffering from Central Serous Retinopathy.OCT test has detected this.As this problem resolves on its own in 90% of the cases no medicine has been prescribed.After 6 months if the problem does not resolve then FFA Angiogram will be done and if necessary Laser/PDT may have to be done.During this 6 months periodic OCT may have to be done for checking the eye condition.
My Question is  whether LASER/PDT can really help him in GAINING BACK VISION ACUITY and whether the Laser/PDT will leave any scar mark.Please help with your answer

Answer
Dear Kalyan

Thank you for asking query
Laser / PDT  does help to certain extent but dont expect dramatic improvement
Yes ofcourse laser will cause scarring in retina wherever there are laser shots
But suggest you get FFA angiography done to see for leakages
Especially in and around macular region
