DESIGN Observational cohort study. METHODS The study included 98 eyes of 98 patients with GON, with a mean follow-up time of 4.3 +/- 2.7 years. Diagnosis of GON was based on masked assessment of optic disk stereophotographs. All patients had normal standard automated perimetry visual fields at… CONTINUE READING
