Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic disorder of the gastrointestinal tract that is frequently associated with extra-intestinal manifestations. Ocular manifestations generally include episcleritis, scleritis, and anterior uveitis. Vision-threatening complications like retinal vascular occlusions and retinal vasculitis have been anecdotally reported in these patients. We present a case of ulcerative colitis who presented with bilateral occlusive retinal vasculitis and retinal neovascularization, 10 years after being diagnosed with the disease. She was successfully managed with oral immunosuppressive agents and scatter laser photocoagulation. This case highlights the importance of ophthalmic examination in patients with ulcerative colitis, which is considered to be infrequently associated with ocular manifestations.
