tooth extraction cause blindness

Dear all,

Could anyone explain to me if there is a connection between eye's and tooth's nerve? The problem is that soon after I got my upper right side jaw's teeth extracted I went blind on my right eye totally. I did ask other doctors and dentists and all of them said that it must be due to the extraction of my tooth. Only the dentist who extracted my teeth said that the extraction has nothing to do with my eye.

I have seen this and it is most likely related to the anesthesia reaching the area of the eye nerve or blood vessel.  Was this an upper tooth?

Dear Sir,

First of all, I sincerely want to thank you for your comment.
Yes, it was an upper tooth (3rd molar, on right side). Soon after my 3rd molar was extracted, my right eye went blind. Could you please kindly give me the explanation regarding to the situation I am facing now? How are eyes' and tooth's nerves related?
Thank you very much for your kind help.
