We report the clinical observation of a 16-year-old male, with no particular medical or ocular history, who presented with loss of vision in the right eye on the first post-operative day after uncomplicated extraction of the four third molar roots under general anesthesia. Loss of vision, due to optic disc ischemia, persisted after 2 months. The clinical and pathogenic features of this rare optic nerve ischemia complication are discussed.
