Patients with a demyelinating cause of optic neuritis usually have a good visual recovery but intravenous steroid followed by oral steroids may be used to speed up visual recovery.
In contrast, for the other causes of optic neuritis, the final visual outcome may be poor if optic neuritis is left untreated. Clinical examination complemented by relevant investigations such as visual field testing, blood tests and MRI are important to differentiate the different types of optic neuritis and their appropriate treatment.
