Answer

Answer

Common presenting complaints include floaters, flashing lights, scotomas or other visual field defect, and decreased visual acuity. Presence of an afferent pupillary defect strongly suggests significant optic nerve involvement. Diagnoses often are based on clinical evidence seen on funduscopic examinations.
