In brief: Depends on cause

Fluid behind eyes is usually diagnosed by an md exam and refers to leakage from blood vessel in the back of the eye.
These vessels occur in, or beneath the retina. Common causes include diabetes, macular degeneration, central serous retinopathy(csr), and inflammatory conditions. Treatment can be eyedrop or injectable medication or laser depending on the cause. Csr often clears w/o treatment.
