Congenital optic nerve head anomalies are a group of structural malformations of the optic nerve head and surrounding tissues. Visual prognosis depends on the type of anomaly present. Different systemic associations can be seen with congenital optic nerve anomalies. Newer ancillary investigations aid in diagnosis as well as detection of complications. Therefore, correct diagnosis and monitoring is important. Congenital optic nerve head anomalies are classified according to the abnormalities of optic disc size, conformation, or by the presence of abnormal tissue at the nerve head (pseudoswelling). Here, we present two cases of congenital optic disc anomalies with abnormality of conformation – optic disc pit and Morning Glory disc.
