What is Optic Neuritis?
Optic neuritis is an inflammation of the optic nerve. It occurs when an individual’s immune system mistakenly attacks the myelin sheath covering the optic nerve, causing inflammation and damage. While optic neuritis can occur in isolation, it is frequently seen in the setting of multiple sclerosis, Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis, or Neuromyelitis Opitca.
