Peripheral Chorioretinal Scars
A chorioretinal scar is an area of pigmentary change or fibrosis that is located on the inside surface of the eye. These may be the result of an old infection or injury, but in some cases we do not know the source. If the chorioretinal scar is in the central retina, it can cause decreased vision. However, in most cases it is located away from the center and does not cause any problems.
