Optic Disc Drusen - mild

Optic Disc Drusen The above optic disc photos are from a 36-year-old female referred from her optometrist after a routine examination revealed a peripapillary hemorrhage. She was asymptomatic. She had 20/20 visual acuities bilaterally and normal intraocular pressures. No visual field abnormalities were noted. The photos of the right optic disc show drusen (green arrow) and a small hemorrhage) blue arrow. She was reassured the hemorrhage would resolve on its own and asked to follow up in 2 months. Upon return to the clinic, the hemorrhage was resolving and the drusen were stable. She was asked to return in one year for an exam.
