"Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is an infrequent event determined in ophthalmologic outpatient visits. Bilateral involvement is even rarer. We report a rare case of binary CRAO. He developed an episode of sudden onset of painless reduced vision in the both eyes 10 minutes after administration of opium .He initially indicated a sudden decrease of visual acuity (VA) in his left eye three hours later, he demonstrated with abrupt deterioration of the right eye. Visual analysis revealed hand motion determination in his left eye and perception of light in the right one. The interesting point about this patient is that he did have not any other predisposing factor. To the greatest of our facts, no opium-induced bilateral CRAO research paper has been published in yet. However the manner underlying opium lasts unknown, more agreeable is still desired to prohibit the squeal of this blinding condition."
