Herein, we report a case of acute, unilateral, painless visual loss in a middle-aged female. A 43-year-old female presented with rapid painless diminution of vision in the left eye with no history of any systemic disease. Anterior segment findings were within the normal limit in both eyes. Fundus examination revealed hemorrhages at the disc with pale disc and disc edema in the left eye and no remarkable change in the right eye. Ultrasound B-scan (USG) and computed tomography (CT) scan revealed optic nerve head drusen (ONHD). Diagnosis of nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) secondary to ONHD of the left eye was made.
