Ophthalmic complications are possible during pregnancy or soon after child birth even in normal uneventful pregnancy. Here we are presenting a rare case of central retinal vein occlusion in a 26 year old female during 4th week of her puerperium without any history of preeclampsia. Fundus examination showed dilated tortuous veins, multiple flame shaped haemorrhage, and disc oedema. Optical coherence tomography revealed cystoid macular oedema. Intravitreal avastin injection was given. There was improvement in visual acuity with complete resolution of fundus findings within 6 months.
