The patient was a high myope with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) of 6/9 (20/60) in the right eye and 6/60 (20/200) in the left eye. Visual acuity did not improve with pinhole in either eye. On examination there was no relative afferent pupillary defect (RAPD) and both optic discs were normal. However, color vision (tested with Ishihara’s pseudo-isochromatic plates) was impaired in the left eye and normal in the right. Red desaturation was present in the left eye.
The neurological examination was normal. Visual field testing showed a diffuse reduction in sensitivity of the left eye with a dense centrocecal scotoma and a superior temporal quadrantanopia in the right eye (Figure 1), which was confirmed with a second visual field test on the following day (Figure 2). This pattern of defects is a junctional scotoma.
