Non-arthritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy is the most common cause of sudden visual loss due to optic nerve involvement in patients above 50 years old. As this problem can be considered as a sclera out let syndrome an there is no effective and successful treatment for it, we decided to do a neurotomy procedure and relax the involved optic nerve in order to achieve acceptable treating outcome.
