Optic disc drusen is a clinically rare condition, and missed diagnosis of it can easily happen when the central vision is not affected. However, sometimes optic disc drusen can cause damage to the optic nerve and blood vessels. The standardized automated perimetry has important clinical value for the evaluation of its functional damage. Two cases will be presented below.
