Cholesterol retinal emboli, commonly known as Hollenhorst plaques, are small clots within the retinal arterial system that may cause a poor eye sight, the most common emboli being refractile yellow cholesterol embolus. These emboli account for approximately 20% of all central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) cases. These emboli are often very small and may not constrict all the blood flow in the arteries, occuring asymptomatically. If central retinal occlusion occurs, it is an emergency situation that may result in massive, irreversible damage if not treated quickly and appropriately.
