Peer review: Ischaemic optic neuropathies - how can I tell which one?
Ischaemic optic neuropathies can look similar in presentation with acute unilateral loss of vision. However, it is essential to know the difference between types to identify those who can be prone to severe loss of vision and possible blindness. In this peer review session, risk factors, typical presentations and referral criteria will be discussed. OCT, visual fields and fundus images will be utilised to aid practitioners with differential diagnosis.
