The prognosis for CSR is generally excellent. Over 90% of patients regain 20/30 vision or better within 6 months. Some visual abnormalities can remain even if visual acuity is measured at 20/20. Lasting problems can include decreased night vision, color discrimination problems, and some distortion. Long term complications can include subretinal neovascularization and pigment epitheliopathy.

The OCT images above show the increased fluid under the retina that prompted the initial visit. 5 months later the fluid has significantly decreased and is completly gone after 7 months.
