This presentation will review the causes and clinical findings of patients with true disc swelling and those with pseudo disc swelling. In particular, it will review the OCT changes of optic disc drusen, compared to papilledema. This presentation will also review the differential diagnosis of true disc swelling, the clinical assessment and the ongoing referral required.

 

This presentation will assist optometrists to ensure they have a clear approach when assessing and managing swollen optic discs and will help ensure patients get the appropriate care without over-investigating everyone.
