We report a case of bilateral optic nerve head drusen complicated by choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in the left eye at presentation. The presence of optic disc and macular edema in addition to exudation led to the misdiagnosis of neuroretinitis at an outside medical center. Swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and SSOCT angiography were critical in establishing the diagnosis and follow-up in a noninvasive manner. Secondary CNV associated with optic nerve head drusen responded well to intravitreal injections of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor in the left eye. Asymptomatic nonexudative CNV that developed in the right eye during follow-up regressed spontaneously without treatment. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2022;53:518-521.].
