Waxy pallor of optic disc, attenuated arterioles and typical bone corpuscle-like pigments all point toward pigmentary retinal dystrophy though history of night blindness is denied by the patient .

Looks like early central areolar choroidal atrophy in both the eyes involving disc & macula with pigment proliferation or inverse / atypical RP. Prescribe antioxidant and transpalpabral microcurrent retinal stimulation can be tried which helps in RP, CACD, Dry AMD with nongeographic / geographic atrophy, myopic chorioretinal degeneration & now FDA approved. The MCS device is available at Amazon. It may improve vision and slowdown the progression in CACD

Retinitis pigmentosa with optic atrophy

Thanks Curofy for the comment . I checked all answers after your comment,now and no body put optic atrophy along with retinitis pigmentosa.35 yr M ,presented with dov in BE. I am not understanding dov. Is there an abrevation like dov? I would like know the expansion . .

Sectoral retinitis pigmentosa. So may be no night blindness for the patient as only a sector of retina is involved.
