Optic Neuritis

Optic neuritis is the most common cause of sudden visual loss in young patients between the ages of 15 and 45.


Often optic neuritis is associated with discomfort in or around the eye, particularly with eye movement. It may be difficult to diagnose because the eye may look perfectly normal.

Treatment Options

In over 99% of cases, the pain goes away in a few days and the visual loss improves over a period of weeks or months, without treatment.


Wheaton Eye Clinic’s unparalleled commitment to excellence is evident in our continued growth. Today we provide world-class medical and surgical care to patients in six suburban locations—Wheaton, Naperville, Hinsdale, Plainfield, St. Charles, and Bartlett.
