Question: What main abnormality is seen on ONH/RNFL OCT? 

Question: What is the diagnosis in this patient? 

Question: What findings consistent with a split superior RNFL bundle are seen on this patient’s OCT images?

Question: RNFL split bundles are susceptible in which patient population?

Learning Objectives:

1.    Interpreting RNFL and GCC OCT images in patients with red disease.
2.    Identifying split-bundle RNFL defects on OCT.
