Superior segmental optic nerve hypoplasia (SSOH) is a congenital anomaly of the optic nerve that is commonly misdiagnosed as normal tension glaucoma (NTG) and/or juvenile open angle glaucoma (JOAG). We demonstrate the utility of SD-OCT in assessing the structure-function correlation when differentiating between SSOH and JOAG.
