Optic neuritis

Optic neuritis is the name for inflammation of the optic nerve. This is the nerve that carries messages from the eye to the brain.

Although optic neuritis is associated with MS, not everyone who has optic neuritis will have, or go on to develop, MS. Many people will have optic neuritis with no further symptoms.
