Optic disc pit: primary diagnosis in a child.

Author information

Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.


Congenital abnormalities of the optic nerve head are commonly detected by optometrists in practice. While some severe abnormalities can lead to poor visual acuity and are associated with other ocular and systemic disorders, others such as pits of the optic disc are predominantly benign with a latent risk of visual loss. This report details the primary diagnosis of unilateral optic disc pit in a seven-year-old patient.
