Abstract

Case reports: A prospective, noncomparative, observational case series. Three patients, aged 76 to 81, all referred to subspecialty services for evaluation of optic disc elevation, and all were found to have optic disc (vitreopapillary) traction as verified by optical coherence tomography. Comments: Vitreopapillary traction is a recently recognized syndrome characterized by incomplete posterior vitreous detachment. The use of optical coherence tomography is helpful in the diagnosis of this syndrome, preventing many costly, unwarranted evaluations.
