Angry Optic Neurisis - It's been 7 months and my vision has'nt returned

I was diagnosed with ON is September last year. I am a 33 year old female living in South Africa.
I was immediately given cortisone and sent for an MRI scan - which came out clear.

It seemed like my sight was getting better, but lately I have been traveling quite a bit and it seems to be worse.

I am getting quite frustrated as the impaired vision effects my productivity at work - especially since I am working on large computer screens most of the day.

Has anyone had this last so long? Initially I was told my sight would return in 2-8 weeks!

Should I just come to terms with this - or should I stay hopeful that one day my sight will return?

The only advice I get from people is to take Omega 3 - which I have been practically overdosing on!
I don't want to return to any Doctors - because their lack of knowledge is petrifying!

If anyone knows someone who's sight returned after so long - I would love to hear about it.
Thanks

For me it's been 13 weeks...I am completely blind in my left eye.
Like you, MRIs and LP clear.
You are not alone...

33 weeks ( Oct 15 it will be 8 mo.) into my optic neuritis and no improvement. At some point I thought is getting better...but now is worse...I can see shapes and movement and contrast - light colours vs. dark...I have another MRI on Oct. 16 The last one was negative for MS. Now, I almost hope it will be positive, at lest it will be a possible treatment!!!!! Anybody out there???? Is it going to get better?????
