Optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH) is a congenital deficiency of retinal ganglion cells and their axons that form the optic nerve. The condition is associated with visual deficits ranging from no light perception in severe cases, to vision within normal range in mild cases of ONH. We report here a case of mild ONH with normal vision and with visual symptoms relating to a spontaneously occurring Pulfrich effect.
