Just curious to know how long it took you to recover from ON?
I have it currently and it's been there for 3 weeks. My ophthalmologist says he finds it strange as there is hardly any swelling to the optic disc and he's more surprised that I don't have it on the right side side as he thinks it looks red. According to him it looks like I've had it before.....that's news to me!
He says most people with ON have severe loss of vision and mine is only mild and should resolve on it's own. I feel so foolish for coming of the Avonex.
don't beat yourself up about the avonex. it may not be connected at all and i'm assuming you can get back on it if you wanted.
It started to clear up after 3 days of IV solumedrol. However, I noticed decreased color intensity in the effected eye for several months afterwards (sometimes I still experience that even after 12 years). In addition, my eye was sensitive to heat for about 6 months or so. A hot shower or being out in the sun too long would make my vision cloud over. I waited a year to update my eyeglass prescription to give time for my eye to stabilize.An7164 wrote:Just curious to know how long it took you to recover from ON?
