I have seen several reports on line that say CSCR and OSA may be related, but my opthalmologist has not made any such association - and he knows I have OSA.
I hear you. I've had multiple CSR leaks since around 1996 and have permanent fovea damage, though not blindness. I have reduced central vision which is especially bothersome at night. I also get some distortion when fluid is present. Fortunately it's only ever been in one eye. Mine is almost always stress related.
I was diagnosed with OSA around 2000 and have used a CPAP ever since. I also have type 2 diabetes, but that shouldn't be related.
I've seen a handful of similar reports that link the two, but I'm also not convinced. The way I found this thread was through an automated Google search I have set up which constantly scans the Internet for new CSR references. I'm watching for any new theories or discoveries related to cause and treatment. Nothing remarkable so far.
