“A teenage girl came to me complaining of severe headaches and visual disturbances–tunnel vision with “TV static” in her peripheral vision. I dilated her eyes and found bilateral papilledema (swollen optic nerves). An MRI revealed a cyst in her brain that was causing pressure to be put on the optic nerves. She had an operation to remove it and she made a full recovery.”
