Optic disc melanocytoma is a unilateral benign lesion of the optic nerve head, rarely causing visual disturbances. Vascular changes causing central retinal vein occlusion, compressive or mechanical effects of the mass over the optic nerve head can cause decrease in visual acuity. Here, authors report a case of optic disc melanocytoma associated with Choroidal Neo-Vascular Membrane (CNVM) causing visual impairment which is one of the rare association.
