Patient Presentation: A 23-year-old obese female was diagnosed with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) and referred to neurosurgery for ventriculoperitoneal shunt. A baseline ocular examination was performed prior to the procedure.
On examination, vision was 20/200 in the right eye, and 20/40 in the left eye. There was a right relative afferent pupillary defect. Slit lamp examination was normal.
A dilated fundus examination was performed demonstrating the following:
Patient Presentation: A 64-year-old female was referred to neuro-ophthalmology clinic for bilateral blurred optic disc margins. Her past medical history was significant for obesity. Visual acuity was 20/40 OD and 20/30 OS with equal pupil sizes and no RAPD. Colour vision was 14/14 on Ishihara plates OU. Fundus photos and Humphrey 24-2 SITA-fast visual fields are shown below:
There are indistinct nasal optic disc margins in both eyes.
Visual fields show non-specific depressed points in both eyes.
An OCT RNFL was performed below:
Question: What pathology is seen on the OCT RNFL?
Question: A spectralis OCT of the optic nerve heads were conducted and shown above. What disease process is seen on the above OCT images?
