392 Possible Causes for Loss of Vision, Optic Disc Pallor

  • Optic Atrophy

    Your child’s teacher of students with visual impairments should perform a functional vision assessment to determine how your child uses his or her vision in everyday life[afb.org] CONCLUSIONS: Deeply buried ODD may be associated with NAION causing irreversible visual loss and optic disc pallor, a condition easily mistaken for atypical ON.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Optic atrophy describes a group of diseases of retinal ganglion cells and axons that eventually lead to loss of vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Optic Neuritis

    Bilateral optic neuritis occurred in 10. Optic disc pallor was found in 35%, edema in 46%, and 19% had normal fundus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This can cause short or long-term loss of vision.[nlm.nih.gov] disc pallor and/or optic disc swelling relative afferent pupillary defect detected by the swinging light test in the affected eye, the pupil will dilate with direct illumination[medbullets.com]

  • Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy

    The disease is characterized by loss of central vision due to retinal ganglion cell (RGC) dysfunction and optic nerve atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fundoscopic examination showed hyperemic papilla on the right eye and optic disc pallor on the left eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After subsequent development of bilateral optic disc pallor, we concluded that the patient had LHON. mtDNA analysis was conducted using non-radioisotopic single-strand conformational[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Purtscher's Retinopathy

    Abstract Non-ocular causes of loss of vision following polytrauma have been rarely reported in the literature.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most common chronic signs were optic disc pallor and atrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Practice CMAJ December 08, 2009 181 (12) E277; DOI: A 53-year-old man presented with acute, severe loss of vision in both eyes.[cmaj.ca]

  • Toxic Retinopathy

    disc pallor .[ejournalofophthalmology.com] Malpractice settlements are large for undetected hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine toxicity which, if untreated, can lead to permanent loss of central vision.[books.google.com] […] and loss of color vision.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    She presented with a history of acute, painless vision loss in her left eye over a period of 10 days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both eyes had optic disc pallor, arteriolar attenuation, and peripheral bony spicules suggestive of the triad of retinitis pigmentosa.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Funduscopic examination revealed a typical appearance of advanced RP with optic disc pallor, narrowed retinal vessels, bone-spicule like pigmentary changes in the mid-periphery[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Glaucoma

    disc pallor in humans. 1 - 5 Current pathophysiologic concepts of early glaucoma are based primarily on experimentally induced elevations of ocular pressure in laboratory[doi.org] The disease is responsible for one in ten cases of visual impairment.[telegraph.co.uk] Ophthalmological examination revealed 0.15 Snellen visual acuity, and fundoscopy revealed nearly total cupping and pallor of the optic disc and multiple retinal hemorrhagic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Central Retinal Vein Occlusion

    Bilateral optic disc pallor was then noted with recovery of CRVO.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 14-year-old girl presented with sudden, painless loss of vision in the left eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Subsequently, he developed a left central retinal vein occlusion within 2 weeks of his initial vision loss. His vision did not improve with corticosteroids.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Foster-Kennedy Syndrome

    A 48-year-old woman complained of acute loss of vision in her right eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The original description of the Foster Kennedy syndrome included the clinical triad of optic disc pallor in one eye, optic disc edema in the other eye, and reduced olfaction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The syndrome is defined as the following changes: optic atrophy in the ipsilateral eye disc edema in the contralateral eye central scotoma (loss of vision in the middle of[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Primary Optic Atrophy

    This patient’s optic nerve condition was classified as a significant problem where the risk of central vision loss without treatment was possible.[decisionmakerplus.net] Optic disc pallor is one of the defining characteristics of Dominant Optic Atropy.[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] Damage to an optic nerve can cause vision loss. The type of vision loss and how severe it is depends on where the damage occurs. It may affect one or both eyes.[icdlist.com]
