Description A 64-year-old woman was referred for bilateral optic disc edema. Examination of her optic nerves showed indistinct margins at the nasal aspect of both eyes (Figure 1). Humphrey 24-2 SITA-Fast visual fields showed non-specific depressed points in both eyes (Figure 2). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) showed a normal RNFL thickness, but there were areas of vitreopapillary traction evident from the B-scans (Figure 3). Spectralis OCT of the optic nerve of right eye (Figure 4) and left eye (Figure 5) showed areas of vitreopapillary traction in the nasal portion of both optic discs. OCT of the macular showed epiretinal membranes in both eyes (Figure 6).
