Venomous snake bites, a serious health issue in Asian countries, may be associated with multiorgan involvement, although ocular manifestations are relatively uncommon. Herein, we report a case of snakebite induced macular infarction. A seventeen-year-old girl presented with a history of viper snake bite in the right ankle, followed by a sudden painless drop in vision in the left eye, 20 days back with BCVA of 20/600. Left eye fundus examination revealed temporal pallor of the optic disc with retinal whitening in the macular area, and sclerosed macular branch arteriole, consistent with macular infarction. She was managed conservatively.
