BCB press release stated that Shakib reported vision issues and visited an eye specialist in Singapore.
“Shakib has been complaining of subtle issues with his left eye,” said BCB senior physician Dr Debashis Chowdhury. “After consulting ophthalmologists in Bangladesh and abroad and after multiple eye assessments, it was confirmed that he is suffering from extrafoveal Central Serous Chorioretinopathy (CSR) of the left eye.
“It has been decided that a conservative approach will be adopted for managing the issue for now. CSR is a condition that affects the retina, leading to visual disturbances. The medical team overseeing Shakib’s case is optimistic about managing the condition effectively with a conservative approach.”
