Retina of hypertension. This natural progression can be effectively retarded as BP is modifiable by early lifestyle and dietary interventions. An important limitation of this study was our inability to perform a 24– hour automated BP monitoring due to the high cost and lack of such facility at our institute. 1. 2. 44 Tittl MK, Spaide RF, Wong D, et al., Systemic findings associated with central serous chorioretinopathy, Am J Ophthalmol, 1999;128:63–8.

Conclusion The results of this study suggest that a statistically significant correlation exists between elevated BP, its diurnal variation and CSCR. To the best of our knowledge, this is the strongest evidence of the association reported to date. Hence, regular screening of patients with CSCR for hypertension may be useful follow up advice. n Venkatesh P, Gadia R, Tewari HK, et al., Prehypertension may be common in patients with central serous chorioretinopathy, Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol, 2006;244(9):1101–3.
