This patient presented with an elevated optic nerve. To help distinguish between calcified optic disc drusen vs. optic disc edema, fundus autofluorescence (Image B) successfully shows calcified optic disc drusen of the nerve head. The Triton’s capability to simultaneously show true color fundus photos (Image A), fundus autofluorescence (Image B), and OCT (Image C) makes the patient’s presentation clear without the need for further imaging.
