To assess the efficacy and safet of Micropulse diode laser in the treatment of CCSC in terms of resorption of sub-retinal fluid, improvement of Visual Acuity(VA), complications and side-effects associated with the procedure.
All patients underwent complete systemic and ocular examination including Visual Acuity (VA), Slit biomicroscopy using 90 D and indirect ophthalmoscopy,Optical Coherence Tomography(spectral-domain), Fundus Fluorescein Angiography, Contrast Sensitivity (F.A.C.T. chart)
Interventional,prospective, non-comparative case series of 11 patients with CCSC with active leakage site and neurosensory detatchment (NSD) of more than 3 months duration. All patients were submitted to single session of micropulse diode laser and were followed up in terms of Best Corrected Visual acuity(BCVA), Optical coherence tomography, Fundus Fluorescein Angiography and Contrast Sensitivity.
The mean Visual Acuity improved from baseline(0.24) to 0.67 at 4 months. Complete resolution of NSD occurred in 91 % , while resolution of leak was observed in 100% of the patients at the end of follow-up. None of the patients had any complication related to laser.
Sub-threshold Micropulse Diode Laser may prove to be an effective and safe treatment modality in the treatment of Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy.
