Purpose: to evaluate the role of vitreous surgery in Steroids–Induced Sub–Retinal Fibrosis developed as complication of Central–Serous Chorioretinopathy. Methods: 2 eyes of two patients (32 and 54 years, males) underwent pars plana vitrectomy and removal of the sub–retinal fibrosis. (Follow–up of 61 and 23 months, respectively)A full ophthalmological examination, including Fundus Biomicroscopy, Fluorescein and ICG Angiography and OCT was performed at each visit. Results: VA improved ≥ 9 Lines in both eyes (up to 20/20) and OCT assessed the anatomic response to surgery. Conclusions: In our series vitreous surgery represents the best treatment of this complication.
