HTN and elevated cholesterol for 2 months. Patient on medication for the same.

Chief
Complaint

Blurry vision at all distances as her current glasses are damaged

Uncorrected
Visual Distance

The patient was hyperopic with best-corrected visual acuities of OU 20/20 for distance and near.

EXAM PROTOCOL

The refraction performed revealed Myopia, Astigmatism, and Presbyopia OU with best corrected visual acuity of 20/20 OD and 20/20 OS. Upon ocular examination, various hemorrhages were found in the inferior retina of left eye while the right eye retina was within the normal limits. No abnormal changes were observed in the anterior segment. Visual field testing were within the normal limits.  The patient’s intraocular pressures were slightly elevated at approximately 21/22 OU at 4:50pm. 

CONCLUSION

Due to uncontrolled systemic hypertension, high cholesterol levels and inferior retinal vein occlusion in the left eye, the patient was referred for an urgent comprehensive dilated evaluation by a retinal 
ophthalmologist.  The patient was able to visit a retinal MD and is currently being treated for the retinal vein occlusion.
