Aim of this study is to establish role of hyperlipidemia in diabetic retinopathy. Method: A cross sectional study with 200 patients (Group 1 with 100 diabetic patients with diabetic retinopathy, Group 2 with 100 diabetic patients without retinopathy) of type 2 diabetes mellitus for more than 10 years (diabetic age) were included in the study with 100 (Group 3) normal age and sex matched controls.All subjects were investigated for total lipid profile, blood sugar levels along with complete ophthalmic assessment. Results: Mean values of total cholesterol in Group 1, Group 2, and Group 3 were 229.86? 30.25 mg/dl, 218.15 ? 49.19 mg/dl and 152.55 ? 26.53 mg/dl respectively. Conclusion: This study suggests that diabetic retinopathy patients have high serum lipid levels compared to diabetic patients without retinopathy.
