“With the Skin Gone, to What Can the Hair Attach Itself”: When Optic Nerve Atrophy Occurs, What Will Happen to the Medullated Fibers?
Myelinated retinal nerve fiber layers (MRNFLs) are caused by myelinated nerve fibers that grow beyond the lamina cribrosa and appear on the surface of the optic disc and/or retina due to dysplasia of optic nerve fiber sheaths. They can be localized or generalized. The visual field and visual acuity may be damaged in serious cases. MRNFLs are usually static. But under what circumstances will they change?
