Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSR) is well described in the literature, with recognized associations such as systemic steroid therapy and stress; the association of blunt trauma with CSR is highly unusual. A 44-year-old male developed CSR rapidly after blunt trauma to his left eye with a significant reduction in visual acuity to hand movements. Serial optical coherence tomography and fundus fluorescein angiography images are presented. The patient was managed conservatively and spontaneous resolution occurred by 2 months with an excellent visual outcome. There was no evidence of an alternative underlying pathology for the presentation and particularly no signs of posterior uveitis. Investigations for an underlying vascular, inflammatory or infectious cause were all negative. The patient had previously had CSR in his other eye, and this may indicate a potential predisposition to developing the condition, triggered by blunt trauma.
