Embed Optic Neuritis - Causes - Infographic on your site
Optic neuritis is acute inflammation of the optic nerve. Optic nerve is the nerve connecting the eye to the brain. It carries the visual signals from the retina to the brain where it is received and interpreted.It is presumed to be an autoimmune reaction (immune reaction against body’s own cells) resulting in a demyelinating inflammation of the nerve, hence the nerve conduction is delayed. Nerve conduction may also be reduced if there is inflammatory destruction of the nerve fibres.
