The triad of optic disc swelling followed by optic atrophy, optociliary shunt veins (optochoroidal collaterals), and progressive visual loss commonly is reported in compressive lesions of the orbital and intracanalicular optic nerve.
Optic canal decompression for tumors in the intracanalicular area is extremely risky and not uncommonly results in the loss of any remaining vision, unless the tumor has a large exophytic component.
Optic neuritis usually presents with acute or subacute visual loss in a patient younger than 50 years and is frequently associated with pain on eye movement.
