Eight cases illustrating the different configurations of the morning glory disc anomaly are presented. The spectrum of the appearance is due to variability in excavation of the disc, amount of glial tissue and hyaloid system remnants in the center of the disc, and degree of peripapillary pigmentary changes. There is no correlation between optic disc configuration and visual acuity. This anomaly should be suspected in infants presenting with unilateral retinal detachment.
