Neuroretinitis

Neuroretinitis is inflammation of the retina and optic nerve of the eye. The condition can be caused by bacteria, viruses or auto-immune disease. It shares some features of optic neuritis. There is usually central visual loss, which often recovers after some months, but often not completely.

There is no treatment that has proven to be helpful.
