First of all, you need to know that fluid in the retina is NOT normal. How did you find out - did you get an OCT done or did the ophthalmologist find tis on a retinal check up after they dilated your eye?

Hey, I'm sure your doc saw the OCT or retinal examination results and would have told you what the likely causes are and what they plan to do about it. Please specifically ask your doc about this - it could be serious!  add a comment

Do you have any risk factors for chorioretinopathy? Some types of chorioretinopathy show up as fluid under the retina. If it's the serous type then it may not cause much harm.
