A novel entity of optic nerve retraction following blunt trauma in a young boy is reported. Rotational injury of the globe following a fall from a bicycle resulted in optic nerve retraction within the scleral canal. On fundus examination, the scleral rim was visible, with peripapillary and vitreous hemorrhage and associated retinal detachment. Computed tomography of the orbit on axial section revealed an intact optic nerve at the posterior surface of the sclera.
