Non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) is a common optic nerve disease that is characterized by optic disc edema and visual field defects. Most of the previous treatments for and studies on NAION have been limited to the optic disc. With the widespread application of OCT in recent years, increased incidence of NAION complicated by serous detachment in the macula has been reported.
