Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Doctor DanB : Im sorry, but at this point, medical science has not found a way to repair or replace optic nerves. They can essentially be thought of as extensions of the brain and our limitations are the same as those of the brain unfortunately. Do you have optic nerve damage? If so, from what?
