A 65-year-old woman who had no ocular complaints was examined and was found to have tortuous arteries in both posterior poles of the fundus. Visual acuity was 20/20 in each eye, and the results of the remainder of the ocular examination were normal. There were no significant systemic abnormalities. The tortuosity was somewhat more marked in the right eye (Fig 1) than in the left (Fig 2).
