• When the diagnosis of optic glioma is made, the visual loss is most often mildly or profoundly impaired. We report the details of the unusual situation where central visual acuity, visual fields, and color vision were normal at the time a large optic nerve glioma was demonstrated in a young boy. To our knowledge, this is the first case report containing ophthalmologic, neuroradiologic, surgical, and histologic details illustrating the rare association of normal vision and an optic glioma.
