Snake envenomation is a major public health challenge in the interior Sindh region of Pakistan. Ocular complications ensuing snake envenomation are comparatively scarce. A case report of bilateral proptosis and blindness in a 3-year-old girl presenting 5 days after a snakebite is a rare manifestation. Even antivenom and other medical/surgical management could neither reverse her visual loss nor save her life. This report has enlightened the eminence of problems related to snake envenomation in the interior Sindh, Pakistan, and highlights the need for early referral and that ocular manifestations must be treated as an emergency.
