Objective: We are presenting a case of painless progressive left eye visual defect in a healthy fourteen-year-old female. Methods: This case is about an acute onset of left eye blurriness progressing into no light perception in the same eye, consistent with central retinal artery and vein occlusion in the further dedicated eye exam. Extensive workup to reveal the etiology of the clinical presentation was unremarkable. Discussion: Based on the presentation, physical exam, and thorough workup findings, the patient was diagnosed with idiopathic central retinal artery and vein occlusion with no identifiable risk factors. Conclusion: In a young population presenting with acute onset painless vision loss, a comprehensive workup to identify risk factors and possible causes is necessary, and close follow-up must be always present.
