Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   The first is generally not serious, and it is the most common form of cholesterol spots, called the xanthoma
Doctor :   Xanthoma are small, soft, yellow raised bumps on the eyelids that are visible to the physician without needing special equipment. It is useful to check blood cholesterol levels because 50% of people with this condition do have elevated cholesterol levels. Otherwise, this is mostly a cosmetic problem and does not interfere with vision.
Doctor :   The second form of cholesterol spots is the cholesterol embolus, which is seen in the back of the eye (retina) and can only be detected by a physician using special equipment such as an ophthalmoscope or slit lamp. This is the equivalent of a stroke in the eye and is generally treated in the same way as a stroke - using aspirin and cholesterol-lowering medications. Vision can be affected, and this is a serious condition which requires appropriate medical attention.
