Myelinated retinal nerve fibers (MRNF) are a common developmental anomaly. MRNF is commonly associated with myopia. The association of MRNF with myopia, amblyopia, and strabismus is well documented. The amblyopia may be refractory to treatment. We report a case of a child with MRNF and amblyopia in the more hyperopic eye, a case of reverse Straatsma syndrome.
