Abstract

PURPOSE
To report the choroidal neovascularization of 4 patients in central serous chorioretinopathy treated with laser treatment.
CASE SUMMARY
We reported 4 patients with central serous chorioretinopathy. Three patients were treated with focal laser photocoagulation, and 1 patient with photodynamic treatment. All patients newly developed choroidal neovascularization (CNV) after treatment at the area of laser treatment. Three patients received intravitreal anti-VEGF injection and 1 patient received argon laser photocoagulation for the treatment of CNV. After the treatment, the CNV was resolved with improved visual acuity.
CONCLUSIONS
Laser treatment may be efficacious tool to achieve rapid resolution in central serous chorioretinopathy until now. However, more caution at the time of treatment and close follow-up after treatment are warranted.
