We read with great interest the comments made by Dr Gass concerning our recent paper. Dr Gass is a recognized authority on acute outer retinal dysfunction, and his thoughts on the etiology, clinical features, and classification of these conditions are of utmost importance. His observations help to emphasize some of the difficulty that has arisen regarding the classification of these patients. He expresses concerns about the inclusion criteria of our study and our conclusions that the entity of acute idiopathic blind spot enlargement (AIBSE) is different from the other forms of acute outer retinal dysfunction.
