Background: To find the changes of macular perimetry (MP) and the correlations between MP and best correct visual acuity (BCVA) in different phases of the acute central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC).
Methods: Twenty-one eyes with acute CSC and their fellow eyes were analysed retrospectively. MP at 2°, 4° and BCVA in the active and resolved phase were collected and analyzed. The differences of these parameters in CSC eyes and fellow eyes were analyzed. Spearman correlation was used for analysis of correlation between MP and BCVA.
Results: From 29 eyes with CSC analysed 27 eyes (93.10%) recovered to the previous VA. Compared with the active phase, MP at 2°, 4° and BCVA were significantly improved in the resolved phase (P=0.000, 0.000, 0.000, respectively). MP at 2°, 4° and BCVA of CSC eyes were significantly poor compared with the fellow eyes in the active phase (P=0.000, 0.000, 0.000, respectively). In the resolved phase there was no significant difference between the CSC eyes and fellow eyes (P=0.339, 0.141, 0.161, respectively). BCVA was shown to significantly correlate with MP at 2° in the active phase (ρ=–0.630, P<0.001).
Conclusions: The acute CSC often had a good prognosis both in BCVA and MP. MP can provide an additional objective parameter to evaluate the retinal function changes at macula of acute CSC.
