Acta Ophthalmol (Copenh). 1977 Oct;55(5):862-70. doi: 10.1111/j.1755-3768.1977.tb08285.x.


In a woman, aged 45, with presbyopic complaints routine examination revealed pseudodoubling of the right optic disc and a colobomatous defect of the left eye. The former was studied by fluorescein angiography. The differentiation between true doubling and pseudodoubling of the optic disc is discussed.
