A 60-year-old man with type 2 diabetes mellitus was diagnosed as having papilloedema by an ophthalmologist during routine screening for retinopathy. His recent HbA1c was 64 mmol/mol (8%). Blood pressure was 130/80 mmHg. His best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in both eyes. Colour vision, anterior segment examination and intraocular pressure were normal in both eyes. Pupils were briskly reactive to light with no afferent pupillary defect. Fundus examination revealed bilateral, oedematous optic disc with telangiectasia on the disc surface (Figure 1) and no evidence of diabetic retinopathy
