The case study patient

The patient a 28-year-old Hispanic female, 2 weeks post-partum and alternating between breastfeeding and formula feeding, was referred to me for decreased vision OS of unknown etiology. 

When the optometrist saw her, OD BVA was 20/20 and OS BVA was 20/40. When I saw her 2 days later, the vision was still normal OD, as was the VF, but the OS BVA was now CF with an APD, complete loss of VF and red color desaturation.
