A 10-year-old, healthy boy sustained a blunt injury to his right eye with a bicycle handle. He developed lid swelling and noticed an immediate loss of vision. There was no bleeding or loss of consciousness. The visual acuity at the first visit was no perception of light, and fundus revealed [Figure 1] diffuse whitening of the retina, pale edematous disc without cherry red spot. No improvement was seen after the intravenous methyl prednisolone treatment. One month later, optic disc gliosis, white vessels with boxcarring, and atrophic pigmented patches were noted. The patient was diagnosed to have ophthalmic artery occlusion following blunt trauma. This has not been reported before in the literature.
Figure 1: (a) Immediately after blunt trauma, retinal whitening and a pale disc are seen. A cherry red spot is absent. The eye has no light perception. (b) After one month, the fundus shows gliosis over disc, sclerosed white vessels with boxcarring, and atrophic retina with pigmented patches due to ophthalmic artery occlusion
