In reply We appreciate the comments of Drs Traboulsi and Brodsky concerning our case report. We acknowledge that the optic disc anomaly in our report has many morphologic characteristics of a morning glory disc anomaly. However, owing to the absence of glial tissue above or in the excavated optic disc as described by Kindler1 in his original description of the morning glory disc, we classified the anomalous disc under the more general descriptive term of optic nerve coloboma.
