Abstract
We report a unique case of unilateral optic nerve aplasia in an otherwise normally developed child. It was an incidental finding in a preterm child who was being screened for retinopathy of prematurity. Anterior segment of the affected eye was normal. However pupillary light reflexes- direct and consensual were absent. Ultrasound B scan and MRI confirmed the absence of optic nerve, in an otherwise normally developed eye.
