Hi Gnana,
Welcome to HCM.
First of all the cause for optic nerve damage has to be established. If the damage causing factor could be removed and the damage has not been very severe, the nerve will gradually regain it's function. On the other ground if the nerve is damaged beyond repair or the damage causing factor cannot be removed, then very little can be done to save that nerve.
Wishing your niece all the best.
