Central retinal artery occlusion is generally a disease of old age associated with loss of vision in one eye. In older patients, it is usually secondary to emboli from atherosclerotic plaques; in younger patients valvular heart disease is a common precursor. Several other conditions have been associated with central retinal artery occlusion, but to our knowledge, there have been no previously reported cases with pregnancy as the sole associated factor. Such a case is presented.
