A Congenital Vascular Variant of the Optic Nerve as Seen with the Topcon TRC-50DX



"Topcon TRC-50DX optic nerve photo (A) of a 7 year old girl's right eye, showing a likely congenital vascular variant. A retinal artery can be seen exiting the optic nerve vertically into the posterior vitreous, forming a loop. Image B is a fundus photo that shows the patient's normal vasculature, outside of the loop exiting the nerve. Patient's exam is otherwise unremarkable."
