A 62-year-old hypertensive male presented with acute nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) with contiguous macular edema and subretinal fluid in the right eye. Presenting vision was 20/1000. The patient was treated with intravitreal bevacizumab 1.25 mg/0.05 ml. At 1 month follow-up, the macular edema and the optic nerve head edema completely resolved with a good visual improvement up to 20/40. The visual improvement was maintained at the last follow-up 6 months postinjection. Intravitreal bevacizumab may be a good option for acute NAION especially in an unusual presentation with macular edema and subretinal fluid.
