Hi Poooja Vohra
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
There are no specific treatment in blindness secondary to meningitis.The treatment and prognosis depend on the type of damage causing blindness.
Blindness after meningitis is a rare complication but when it occurs damage occurs in brain , so it is difficult to revert back.
However , you should try seeing a neurologist and Optholmologist near your area and get a detailed evaluation.
Hope I answered your question.If you need more information feel free to mail me.
Take care
