Moyo Moya Disease (MMD) is a rare, progressively stenotic condition of the intracranial arteries with various cerebrovascular manifestations. Ocular manifestations are seen very rarely and there are only few case reports of ocular perfusion anomalies. Central Retinal Artery Occlusion (CRAO) can be caused by atherosclerosis related thrombosis, carotid embolism, cardiac embolism, thrombophilic disorders, giant cell arteritis, etc. We are reporting a 26 years old patient with CRAO in the right eye, who was found to have the typical features of MMD on cerebral angiography. CRAO with MMD is a rare occurrence.
