In this study, we evaluated the effect of the argon indirect laser photocoagulation for patients with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC), whose leaking points were indentified near the fovea or inside the papillomacular bundle. Among the 99 eyes of CSC, 62 eyes were assigned to group one, in which leaking points were located outside the papillomacular bundle or at more than 500 microdistance from fovea, and 37 eyes were assigned to group two, in which leaking points were located inside of papillomacular bundle or within 500 microdistance from fovea. Among the eyes in group one, 22 eyes had undergone direct laser photocoagulation treatment; among the eyes in group two, 27 eyes undergone indirect laser photocoagulation treatment; the rest 50 eyes were untreated. With theses results, We concluded that indirect laser treatment may not be in shortening the duration of central serous chorioretinopathy or in improving the vision. Its reccurence rate was higher than the rest of the modalities.
