    Yes, optic neuritis can be very serious. It no prompt treatment taken, one may suffer decreased vision or even blindness. But don't worry, if you take treatment with the doctors and keep a positive attitude, it can be cured. After discharged from hospital, it is better to go back to the hospital for recheck every week in the first month, then recheck once every 1 or 2 months for a half year. Any phenomenon of vision loss or eye discomfort, please go to hospital. May you'll get well soon.
