A 10-year-old child suffered complete loss of the vision of one eye following a blunt ocular injury. He sustained an occlusion of the central retinal artery and traumatic optic neurupathy of the affected eye. Isolated cases of central retinal vessel occlusions and traumatic optic neurapathy following ocular blunt trauma are rare conditions. Clinicians to be aware of the potential for blunt ocular trauma to cause optic nerve damage and retinal vessel occlusions.
