Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I am sorry to say that once the optic nerve has been damaged nothing can be done to regain lost function. There are no clinical trials available.
The only thing that can be done and, from what you have posted it seems that you are already doing it, is to treat any issues (such a glaucoma) so that no further damage occurs. Visual function that is lost due to optic nerve damage can never be regained.
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you at no additional charge :-)
I see that you are offline. I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
What more specific info. do you need? I'm asking about clinical trials.My original question has the details.
