Description This submission is an interesting case that highlights the co-existence of two different visual field defects in the same patient presenting to us with clinical picture of non arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy. The correct interpretation of the visual field defects led to the appropriate localization and appropriate neuroimaging which unmasked a co-existent brain infarct. Thus, this submission highlights the appropriate interpretation of the various visual field defects.
