A 34-year-old male presented with complaints of diminution of vision in the right eye since 2 months. The patient was a known case of diabetes mellitus.

Visual acuity of the right eye was 6/18 and the left eye was 6/6. Right eye fundus examination was suggestive of central retinal vein occlusion with macular edema with lipemia retinalis [Figure 1]. Left eye fundus examination was suggestive of lipemia retinalis.
