Abstract

A study was made to assess the prevalence of optic disc dysversion in normal infant monkeys and the effects of vision-induced alterations in eye growth on disc appearance. Both eyes of each of the 23 normal rhesus monkeys were photographed at 3 weeks of age. In general, none of the infants exhibited optic nerve dysversion.
