Central Serous Retinopathy

I have had central serous retinopathy off and on since 2004. I saw a new specialist today and he feels Flonase my be the problem as I take it for seasonal allergies. Has anyone stopped taking Flonase and cleared up their eye condition? My family doctor and former specialist never mentioned Flonase before but they did ask about stress. I will stop using Flonase and see what happens.

Give it a try - you've got nothing to lose.  1997 Boston Unversity Study showed an increased risk of central serous retinopathy with inhaled or nasal cortisone spray.  There are dozens of other articles showing a relationship with systemic, ocular, or skin steroids and central serous.  Look on PUBMED.com and see lots of articles on above.
