Hello Traumatic optic neuropathy usually settles in 6-8 weeks. There is no proven treatment for traumatic optic neuropathy... Whatever treatment we have ...all is effective if provided within initial 8 hrs of trauma If already 6-8 weeks are over post trauma Then no need to waste money and time

Hello.....CT scan is done for bone disorder...ophthalmoscopy is used used to view retina and optic disc .. ..increase in intraocular pressure worsen damage ..... These tests are not diagnostic center.. You must consult opthalmologist in the nearest hospital..............
