Abstract Our knowledge of the coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19) is rapidly evolving with new information being gathered daily. It has been widely reported thatCOVID-19 increases the risk of thrombotic and thromboembolic events, predisposing patients to pulmonary embolism, cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs), deep vein thrombosis, and myocardial infarction (1,2). A New York City health system recently reported a total of 5 young patients with COVID-19 presented with symptoms of large-vessel ischemic stroke over a 2-week period (3). We present here 2 cases of devastating visual consequences secondary to COVID-19-associated ischemic cerebral infarction occurring at 1 hospital center within 2 weeks.
