Title Deficits in Visual Function Following Resolution of Optic Neuritis
Creator Fleishman, John A; Beck, Roy W
Subject Visual Function Deficits; Optic Neuritis Resolution
Description A study was performed to systematically characterize visual function in eyes with recovered optic neuritis. 3 5 eyes from 27 patients, all of which had recovered at least 20/30 Snellen acuity following resolution of the neuritis, were included. Minimum recovery period was six months. Abnormalities were found in color vision (57%), contrast sensitivity (72%), perimetry (26%), stereoacuity (80%), light brightness (89%), pupillary reaction (89%), and optic disc appearance (77%). 85% of patients complained of at least some subjective disturbance in vision. Subjective visual complaints correlated better with deficits in contrast sensitivity than they did with the other measures.
