A healthy man in his mid-20s was referred to evaluate persistent, stable metamorphopsia in the left eye for 1 year. He had an enlarged blind spot in his left visual field for 2 years and denied symptoms of headaches, photophobia, blurred vision, or eye pain. Within the last year, the patient stated he had a 2-diopter hyperopic shift in his refraction of the left eye. He had undergone 2 magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies of his orbits over the previous year. Both were read as normal. His medical history was significant for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and depression. He denied any previous ocular surgical procedures or trauma to either eye. He was prescribed bupropion.
