This is a color fundus photograph of a 35-year-old healthy patient. The media are clear, providing a crisp view of the fundus. The optic disc appears pink with sharp margins and a cup-to-disc ratio of approximately 0.35. The vasculature is normal in course and caliber. The striated sheen radiating outward from the disc is evidence of a healthy retinal nerve fiber layer. There are no lesions, scars, or pigmentary changes in the macula or periphery. The fovea exhibits a crisp foveal light reflex.
