Every year, a substantial number of snakebite cases are reported worldwide, more so from tropical countries. Although the fatality rate is quite low, it is nonetheless considered a medical emergency in view of the possible hematological, neurological, cardiac, and renal complications. The snake venom injected into the body contains a multitude of compounds that are responsible for their multisystem involvement. However, ocular complications following a snakebite are seldom reported in the literature. Our case report deals with the occurrence of transient central retinal artery occlusion and toxic neuritis soon after a snakebite.
