  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 59-year-old male presented with visual impairment in his right eye two days after blunt ocular injury. The visual acuity was no light perception in the right eye. The right eye showed exophthalmos with the intraocular pressure of 28 mmHg. Fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography showed impaired flow in the central retinal artery and temporal posterior ciliary artery. The nasal posterior ciliary artery appeared intact. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a hematoma within the inferior rectus muscle as the presumed cause of ophthalmic artery occlusion. The visual acuity improved to light perception a few hous after systemic hyperosmotic therapy and acetazolamide. Three months later, the hematoma became smaller associated with recovery of circulation in the central retinal artery and temporal posterior ciliary artery.
