Brief Answer:
You probably have serous detachment of macula

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Optic disc pit is a congenital condition and are usually asymptomatic unless complicated by serous retinal detachment involving the macula, because of entry of subretinal fuid from the optic pit.

The treatment is by laser photocoagulation applied at temporal disc margin to prevent the entry of subretinal fluid from optic disc. Non responsive cases require surgery in the form of vitrectomy and gas tamponade.

Since the treatment involves procedure, it is essential that you visit an eye surgeon and plan the aforementioned treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need clarifications.
