MO is a 54-year-old woman who noted a shadow increasing over several months in the lower part of her field of vision in the left eye. She presented to her optometrist, who noted vision OD of 20/20 and OS of 20/30 with some distortion. Fundus examination of the left eye found a lightly pigmented lesion posterior to the superior equator. A visual field examination showed an inferior defect that extended into the lower part of central fixation.
