Abstract
One of the ophthalmic complications seen following Covid19 infection is occlusive retinopathy. This occurs due to increased coagulopathy and inflammation which in turn is  triggering the vascular events. Since end vessels are involved here, vision loss is significant. We report five such cases seen in our setup within a span of one month with varied presentations and deranged systemic parameters.
