Inflammation of choroid layer (layer of blood vessels) directly behind retina; can lead to scarring of both choroid and retina, permanently impairing vision, especially if central area of retina is affected. Condition is painless, but should be suspected if there is blurred vision in centre of visual field and person has been exposed to Toxocara infection from close handling of dogs and cats and contact with their faeces toxocariasis. Choroiditis is also seen in babies whose mothers are infected with syphilis (see Sexually Transmitted Diseases), though very rarely. Your medical doctor will arrange for blood tests and X-rays then prescribe steroids or, in severe cases, immunosuppressive drugs to prevent further damage to choroid and retina. If you are unable to take these drugs, or if condition recurs after stopping them, consult your homeopath.
