Department of Ophthalmology, University of Athens, Greece

Purpose: To report a case of acute visual loss after endoscopic spinal surgery.

Methods: A patient was immediately referred to our department after epidural endoscopy with severe bilateral visual impairment and underwent complete ophthalmologic examination.

Results: Visual acuity was decreased in both eyes. Fundus examination revealed the presence of retinal and vitreous hemorrhages bilaterally. Four months later, visual acuity increased and the hemorrhages were remarkably resolved.

Conclusion: The present case represents an extremely rare incidence of intraocular hemorrhage following epiduroscopy.

Keywords: visual acuity, hemorrhage, intraocular, BCVA
