|History: A 58 year-old man presented with a right
visual disturbance described as dimming of
his right inferior visual field. The visual acuity was 6/9 in the RE and 6/6 in the LE. Fundoscopy
revealed two shiny emboli (cholesterol) in the right superior retinal artery. He was referred to
the cardiologist for further investigations. Echocardiogram was normal but the carotid artery
ultrasound revealed bilateral atheroma with narrowing of 40%. No endarterectomy was
performed as the narrowing were below the critical level. He was advised to take 75mg of
aspirin a day. The emboli disappeared at 3-month follow up.
