A 15-year-old girl was found to have temporal hemianopia of the left eye. Her visual acuity was 20/20 OU and she had normal color discrimination bilaterally. Left afferent pupillary defect was present. Right-eye perimetry results were normal, but complete temporal hemianopia respecting vertical meridian was found on the left (Figure 1).
