Re: Optic neuritis??

I had optic neuritis in 2004, unfortunately, I lost vision completely in both eyes, and yes the only thing that will take it away and make it stay away is intravenous steroids. Within 2 days my vision was recovering and I had 4 treatments, and was back to 100% within 2 weeks. It is extremely scary and my prayers go out to you for a speedy recovery. For me the pain was unbearable. I went to the hospital twice for the pain. I could not move my eyes at all without crying. Best of luck to you!
