Optic Neuritis

Optic neuritis is the inflammation of the optic nerve that may cause a complete or partial loss of vision. Major symptoms are sudden loss of vision (partial or complete), or sudden blurred or “foggy” vision, and pain on movement of the affected eye. Many patients with optic neuritis may lose some of their color vision in the affected eye, with colors appearing subtly washed out compared to the other eye. In many cases, only one eye is affected and patients may not be aware of the loss of color vision until the doctor asks them to close or cover the healthy eye.
