Abstract

Shared in this section is a case in which a young female had superior altitudinal hemianopia with normal central vision in one eye. Was it optic nerve atrophy caused by optic neuritis or normal tension glaucoma (NTG), etc.? Or was it congenital optic nerve hypoplasia? The visual field findings gave us important clues.
