Purpose: The objective was to study the safety and efficacy of subthreshold micropulse yellow laser in the treatment of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective interventional case series in a tertiary eye care center. Patients diagnosed to have CSCR were treated with subthreshold micropulse yellow laser, over the leaks identified by fundus fluorescein angiography. Subretinal fluid (SRF) level was measured by optical coherence tomography at baseline and the follow-up visits at 1, 3, and 6 months. Results: Twelve eyes of 12 patients were included, and there was a statistically significant improvement in visual acuity as well as reduction in SRF level between baseline and the follow-up visits. Conclusion: There was a beneficial effect of subthreshold micropulse yellow laser in the treatment of CSCR in this study, with complete resolution of SRF in ten out of 12 eyes (83.3%). However, a larger study is warranted.
