BC is a 10-year-old boy who failed his vision test in school and was referred to an optical shop to be fitted for glasses. The optometrist found visual acuity OD of 20/20 and OS of 20/40+2. Fundus examination revealed some swelling of the left optic disc, so he was then referred to an ophthalmologist. Optic disc edema was confirmed, and the presence of choroidal folds was also noted. Exophthalmometry measured 15 mm OD and 18 mm OS.
