Concurrence of two different neuro-ophthalmic entities in a single patient is rare. The second disease entity may get incidentally detected when the patient is evaluated for one pathology. Such coincidences may be seen in patients having systemic diseases with microvascular complications, such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Herein, we report a case of a 62-year-old female patient who was detected to have bilateral inferior altitudinal hemianopia with right homonymous hemianopia as a result of bilateral anterior ischemic optic neuropathy with left occipital lobe infarct.
