If its optic neuritis then a MRI should be done to rule out multiple sclerosis which will require long term treatment.

The condition that you suffered from is called optic neuritis. The treatment that was given to you was right. Unfortunately, the recovery is highly unpredictable, there is a phase where the recovery is very fast followed by slow phase and then stabalization. Just keep following regularly with both neurologist and ophthalmologist.
