Choroidal nevi are frequently seen, benign intraocular tumors originating from the uvea. The majority of choroidal nevi are asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally. However, they can be symptomatic due to decompensation and metaplasia of the retinal pigment epithelium, photoreceptor atrophy, or choroidal neovascularization. They tend to have a low potential for malignant transformation. Serous macular detachment secondary to choroidal nevi is a cause of severe visual morbidity. The diagnosis and treatment may cause difficulties for physicians. In this report, we present three cases of serous macular detachment secondary to choroidal nevi and discuss its clinical features and treatment options.
