Where/what leaks: There are many causes for leaking of fluid in the retina. Treatment depends on the underlying cause, and location, of the leak. Fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography (oct) are the main tools used to determine the cause and location of the leak, and the best treatment.

Complete exam: Your eye doctor is trying to evaluate the source of the fluid. Fluorescein angiography maps the blood vessels in the back of the eye and can show if fluid is leaking from any of the vessels. It will help them with diagnosing and treating the fluid. Good luck.
