Optic Neuropathy Types, Causes, Symptoms & Treatment

The term optic neuropathy refers to damage or dysfunction in the nerve that transmits information about the visual world from the retina to the brain. Optic neuropathy can be caused by a variety of factors, including injury, inflammation and infection. It may also result from exposure to toxic substances or underlying conditions such as multiple sclerosis.
The optic nerve can cause a wide range of symptoms, depending on the severity and extent. This can include blurred vision or loss of peripheral sight, as well as difficulty in distinguishing colours and, in more severe cases, complete blindness. The treatment for optic neuropathy will depend on the cause and could include medication, surgery, or lifestyle modifications. You should seek immediate medical attention if your vision changes or you have other symptoms of optic neuropathy.
