The aim of this study is to report a 7-year-old girl with psychogenic visual disturbance that improved upon staying at home after the declaration of a state of emergency in relation to Coronavirus disease. Her uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) in the right eye was 0.4 and in the left eye was 0.3. Slit-lamp examination and fundoscopy showed no abnormalities. She had a tight schedule on six days a week due to various lessons. To prevent the spread of infection, her school was closed, and she was not able to attend any lessons. She enjoyed spending time at home. Six months after her initial visit during school closure, her UCVA had improved to 1.2. The situation of staying at home may have had a positive psychological effect after removing factors contributing to her stress.
