Central venous stasis retinopathy (CVSR) was observed in two young women following the administration of oral tranexamic acid (TA) for the treatment of menorrhagia. Clinical and laboratory parameters were normal. Withdrawal of the drug and treatment with systemic steroids and fibrinolytic drugs resulted in improvement of visual acuity to 6/6. The pathogenesis of the CVSR in these cases is suggested, and the rationale of systemic treatment is discussed.
