Reduced retinal blood flow-velocity in severe hyperlipidemia measured by the retinal function imager

Severe hyperlipidemia is associated with rare ocular manifestations, including iris and retinal xanthomas, lipid keratopathy, and lipemia retinalis. The later condition of lipemic discolorization of the retinal vessels and fundus has rarely been described in cases of severe hypertriglyceridemia . We report here a case of a patient with lipemia retinalis where retinal blood flow velocity was measured in the acute phase and after a reduction in triglyceride level was achieved.
