Caption: Optic disc drusen. Fundoscopy image of the retina of a patient's eye in a case of optic disc drusen. The retina is the light-sensitive layer at the back of the eye. At right is the optic disc where blood vessels and the optic nerve enter the retina. Drusen is a condition in which small white hyaline growths form on the head of the optic nerve. Although the optic disc plays no role in vision, nerve damage in drusen may cause impairment to peripheral vision. It may also result in retinal detachment. Drusen is a hereditary condition.
