On initial examination, the patient’s best-corrected visual acuity was 20/100 in the right eye and 20/70 in the left eye. The pupils were symmetrically 3 mm in diameter and poorly responsive to light in both eyes, with no evidence of a relative afferent pupillary defect. Intraocular pressure was recorded as 16 mm Hg in each eye. Slit-lamp biomicroscopy was unremarkable. Dilated fundus examination revealed marked optic nerve head swelling suggestive of papilledema and tortuous and dilated retinal venules (Figure 1A).
