Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Hello
Welcome to Health care Magic.

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I will be answering your question.

I reviewed your history. It seems from the history that you are having optic nerve atrophy.
Unfortunately there is no cure for this problem. Use of multivitamins and antioxidants as mentioned by you will help to prevent further progression. Along with this the underlying cause needs to be treated.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Hope the information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you
With regards
I find this answer helpful
