Abstract

Radiation-induced optic neuropathy is a rare complication of radiation therapy that often results in profound, irreversible vision loss. We present a unique case of a patient in whom optical coherence tomography detected an early underlying optic neuropathy despite being visually asymptomatic in the affected eye.
