PMID:  1562124     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present the case of a patient with herpes zoster ophthalmicus and optic neuropathy followed by central retinal artery occlusion. In those with herpes zoster ophthalmicus, in addition to the known usual complications, the possibility of this rare complication also should be considered, and the patient should be followed closely for a prolonged time.
