    The optic nerve is a white matter tract of the brain and its sheath is composed of pia mater, arachnoid mater, and dura mater. The subarachnoid space (SAS) of the optic nerve sheath, which contains cerebrospinal fluid, is contiguous with the SAS of the brain. Elevated intracranial pressure is...
