The usefulness of laser therapy in the central serous chorioretinopathy has been the debate among ophthalmologists since two decades ago. From June 1985 to June 1988, we studied 86 person's 94 eyes of central serous chorioretinopathy prospectively who agreed to be followed-up by periodic visits to our center for over 6 weeks at least. Those were divided into two groups: laser-treated(63 eyes) and not-treated(31 eyes), follow-up examinations were done regularly at first, 3rd., 6th. week, 3rd. and 6th. month as checking visual acuity and fluorescein angiography for the documentations. In terms of each records, visions were improved(more than 2-lines in same acuity chart) in 37(59%) eyes, stationary(change in less than 2-lines) in 24(38%) eyes, overall 6l(97%)eyes of laser-treated group: whereas 7(23%), 20(64%),27(87%) respectively in control group(p<0.01). Anatomical cure rates(no dye leakage or only late simple stain on the points of previous leak) were 60(95%) eyes versus 19(61%) eyes(p<0.005).
