Hello,

I am Dr Ken and I will be helping you today.

I assume you mean optic neuritis {inflammation of the optic nerve}. The prognosis following optic neuritis is generally good. Most people regain close to normal vision {complete recovery} within 12 months after an episode of optic neuritis.

Good luck
