Purpose: To present the reversal of a cilioretinal artery occlusion with the use of intra-arterial tissue plasminogen activator. Observations: A monocular 74 year old male presented with a cilioretinal artery occlusion. Treatment with intra-arterial tissue plasminogen activator 7 hours after the onset of symptoms led to a complete restoration of vision. Conclusions and importance: Early intervention with tissue plasminogen activator reversed acute onset loss of vision from cilioretinal artery occlusion.
