On examination, the patient blinked to light in each eye independently. There was no afferent pupillary defect. Intraocular pressures were soft to palpation in each eye, and motility was within normal limits by doll’s head maneuver. Visual fields could not be assessed due to the patient’s age. The external examination findings are shown in Figure 1. On penlight examination, the sclerae and conjunctivae were white and quiet, the corneas were clear, the anterior chambers were formed, and the irides were round with no lesions. The lenses also appeared clear in both eyes. The dilated funduscopic examination revealed pink, optic nerves with sharp borders and a cup-to-disc ratio of 0.2. The maculae in each eye were flat, and the vessels were of normal course and caliber. Finally, the periphery was normal in both eyes also.
