N e r e commonly (usually in association with central retinal vein occlusion or optic nerve sheath meningioma), optociliary shunt vessels (retinochoroidal collateral vessels) may appear on the disc surface. At a more macroscopic level, the superior ophthalmic vein is variably connected anteriorly to the angular and facial veins and inferiorly to the inferior ophthalmic vein and pterygoid venous plexus. These collaterals may become important, particularly in patients with elevated venous pressure (usually related to a carotid cavernous fistula).
