Optic atrophy helpful hints

from AAN 2010 course
differentiate pallor from atrophy
segmental patterns
signs of prior disc-- swelling high water marks and gliosis, fuzzy edges,
collateral venous vessels-- retinal choroid collaterals, AION or post pappilledeme
macular exudates pretty "fireworks" around macula
attenuated arterioles-- "ghost vessels" with  gliosis
