Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a clonal hematopoietic disorder characterized by a reciprocal translocation between chromosome 9 and 22 resulting in bcr-abl1 fusion gene. Patients usually present with symptoms of anemia, splenomegaly, and hyperleukocytosis. Initial presentation with visual disturbance, without other symptoms, is rare in CML. No specific treatment has been described for ocular lesions in leukemia. Treating the underlying malignancy would aid in resolution of the symptoms. We report a case of CML presenting with retinal hemorrhages.
