Im afraid there is nothing such as dried nerves. Maybe you mean "eye nerves died"? In that case it could be optic atrophy (when the optic nerve, which carries information from your eye to the brain is functionally dead) due to many causes. There is no treatment for this condition.

Hello there.... The problem is termed as age related macular degeneration..... Age-related macular degeneration is the most common cause of vision loss in those aged over 50 years of age..... For the more common dry AMD, there is no specific treatment yet. There are, however, certain things that can be done to maximise the sight you do have and to improve your eye health.....
