We thank Groth and colleagues 1 for their interest in our study. 2 The clinical situation presented by Groth and colleagues illustrated an optic disk–related optic neuropathy that may be partially similar to the optic neuropathy observed in the monkeys with experimentally low cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure. It may be another example showing the potential importance of the CSF pressure as one determinant of the translaminar cribrosa pressure difference.
