Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Hello
Welcome to Health care magic.

I reviewed your history. It seems from the history that you are having inflammation of the optic nerve. Inflammation of the optic nerve is called as optic neuritis. The treatment of optic neuritis is by use of steroids and other immunomodulators in non responding cases.
The underlying causes like infections, autoimmune disorders, multiple sclerosis needs to be evaluated.
Hence I advice you to consult your ophthalmologist for evaluation and treatment accordingly.

Hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards
I find this answer helpful
