Purpose/Method: To present a 72-year-old woman affected by non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NA-AION). To our knowledge, this clinical case, showing a bilateral form of NA-AION, is uncommon as only very few similar reports have been published in the scientific literature at this time.
Results/Conclusions: Visual acuity was reduced to 6/20 in both eyes, color vision was absent and computerized perimetry showed an absolute and general reduction of the retinal sensibility within 30° around the fixation point. Pattern visual evoked potentials and pattern electroretinograms showed normal morphologies but delayed latencies and reduced amplitudes. An updated review of the literature has also been done.
