In our study, we aim to present an interesting case who developed central retinal artery occlusion with preserved central vision because of the presence of cilioretinal artery. A 17-year-old man appealed to our clinic with the complaint of visual loss in the right eye (seeing only the center where the eyes stare at, but not surroundings) suddenly begun 3 months ago. On the examination, visual acuity of the right eye was 10/10, anterior segment examination was normal. On fundus examination, optic nerve head pallor was observed. The examination of the left eye was normal. The computerized visual field revealed concentric narrowing of visual field in the right eye. Since neurologic examination and VEP examination were normal, we carefully reexamined the fundus, and recognized the presence of cilioretinal artery in the right eye. Given these findings, the diagnosis of the previous occlusion of central retinal artery in the presence of cilioretinal artery was assumed.
