Choroidal Thickness Measurements During Central Serous Chorioretinopathy (CSCR) Treatment

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT01610804
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : June 4, 2012

Caroline Brandl, University Hospital Regensburg

Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to determine changes in choroidal thickness in patients with Central Serous Chorioretinopathy (CSCR) during the first 3 months after initial diagnosis via Enhanced-Depth-Imaging-Spectral-Domain-Optical-Coherence-Tomography (EDI-OCT).

Study hypothesis: Since exudative changes in the choroid seem to constitute the primary pathology of CSCR, changes in choroidal thickness compared to healthy eyes should be present and be visible using EDI-OCT.
