Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. Unfortunately Lipitor does not dissolve plaque. At best it helps to prevent further buildup of plaque in the blood vessels.
The picture you sent indicates a condition called "silver wiring" in the blood vessel. This is associated with high blood pressure. The blood vessels in the eye are so small that you can not see plaque in them.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
Yes it can when your blood pressure is controlled.
Yes I do. The right eye:
11 O'clock and 4 O'clock
The left eye:
1 O'clock, 2 O'clock, 4 O'clock and 7 O'clock.
It is not a plaque. It is inside of the artery. The part is normal, but some other parts are narrow. That means they have arterosclerosis. You could remove it with lipitor.
Yes, it does.
It is mild. With good control, retinopathy may regress.
