Living with Optic Neuritis

Reading time: 1 min

Patients who have or have had optic neuritis are advised to follow a healthy lifestyle, which consists of following a Mediterranean diet, doing physical exercise and avoiding consumption of toxic substances such as tobacco and alcohol. 

Once the flare-up has subsided, people who have had neuritis in one eye are usually able to lead a normal life as they did before the neuritis, without it affecting their day-to-day life.  

If the neuritis affects both eyes and recovery is poor, they may have a permanent visual deficit that can make it difficult for them to continue living as they did previously. In these cases, patients can seek out specific jobs for visually impaired people, as well as support to help them return to previous activities.  

The donations that can be done through this webpage are exclusively for the benefit of Hospital Clínic of Barcelona through Fundació Clínic per a la Recerca Biomèdica and not for BBVA Foundation, entity that collaborates with the project of PortalClínic.
