Cup to disc ratio
Hello,

I saw an eye doctor today because I was seeing floaters and was worried about MS. He told me my eye looked fine, no Optic neritis or pars planitis but he said my cup to disk ratio was off. Could this be a sign of MS?

Usually not a sign of MS. It could be a separate risk for glaucoma or what we call glaucoma suspect. Try not to worry too much about this, though, just have your eyes checked yearly. MS has much different signs than cup to disk ratio difference.
