A 16-year-old female presented with a sudden onset painless diminution of vision in the right eye. Fundus examination showed retinal whitening at the posterior pole with a cherry red appearance of fovea suggestive of CRAO. Swept-source Optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) showed increased thickness, hyperreflective inner retina, and an empty vessel. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) confirmed the absence of perfusion in the vessel. After intervention, reperfusion in the vessel was appreciated both on SS-OCT and OCT-A. We report a novel finding of detection of empty vessels on SS-OCT in a case of central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO).
