A 62-year-old male with visual acuity of 20/30 in the right eye was noted to have a round, optic disc pit [ODP, [Figure 1]a] within the inferonasal neuroretinal rim, touching the optic disc margin. Optical coherence tomography (OCT, Optovue, Fremont, CA) showed ODP communication with the vitreous cavity [[Figure 1]b, yellow arrow]. Scanning laser ophthalmoscope [[Figure 1]c, blue arrow] and horizontal OCT scan [Figure 1]d showed inferonasal peripapillary retinoschisis in the corresponding sector.

ODP is a congenital excavation in the optic nerve, and is most commonly found at the temporal location of optic disc and can cause retinoschisis.
This case posed a clinical challenge due to its atypical location and subtle ODP. Imaging with OCT helped to diagnose retinoschisis, which was not visualized on the clinical examination.
