Papilledema is optic disc swelling due to axoplasmic stasis caused by raised intracranial pressure. It is typically associated with symptoms of elevated intracranial pressure, such as headaches, pulsatile tinnitus, and transient visual obscurations. The visual hallmarks are relatively spared visual acuity in the setting of bilateral optic disc edema with enlarged blind spots, nasal visual field loss, or constriction of the visual fields.
