Hello, I am writing this email on behalf of my 36 yr old brother who has central serous maculopathy and is quite depressed and scared. We are looking for guidance/understanding on what to do.
He does not fit any of the description for this case (he is young, no steroids, not diabetic, no stress, healthy diet, works out at gym everyday)...so we don't know why this happened.
Two years ago it started on one eye which filled with liquid and had ephitelial detachment. Since then he has had 7 episodes in total and the last episode also affected the other eye. He has no central vision on one eye and no peripheral on the other, he sees therefore distorted images and vision and colors have been affected. I believe after 7 episodes and each worse, it is chronic CSR.
- Is this or will turn to macular degeneration??
- He worked many years at night looking at the computer,,, can this be an important reason??
- As he has wet type, chronic, both eyes now,,,but 36 yrs old so no age-related,,,,, Is there any substantial hope? or will he gradually get worse?
Those are my main questions as I believe there is no treatment but to wait, although waiting just makes it get worse.... he takes supplements, vitamins and works out every day,,, but hopes are getting dimmer by the minute,,,
Please advise on any information/recommendation you can provide,,, but please be realistic and objective, I don't want to get high hopes but rather understand how big this monster of a situation is,
