Optic Disc Drusen

These disc photos are from an asymptomatic patient noted to have optic disc drusen. They are often bilateral and asymmetric. Optic disc drusen are refractile bodies frequently present at the nasal margin. Visual field defects are common in patients with optic disc drusen, and an RAPD may be noted in asymmetric cases.
