Case of the Month - October 2019

  • A 10 year-old girl was sent from an outside optometrist with concerns for “enlarged optic nerves”. Our patient otherwise had no headaches and no visual complaints other than chronic difficulty with seeing at school for years. Snellen visual acuity was 20/50 bilaterally without correction. No relative afferent pupillary defect was present. The patient had full color vision and normal stereo-acuity. The anterior segment examination was unremarkable in both eyes, and bilateral fundus examination showed elevation of the optic nerve heads.
