    It's a serious disease. You should take care of it. It may cause vision distortion, vision loss, and even blindness. It also known as optic nerve atrophy or optic neuropathy. The optic nerve is very important because it connects and transmits information between the eye and the brain. Anyway, you'd better go to hospital to have an examination. There are many causes for optic nerve damage, you need find them and seek immediate medical care. If you can treat it in its earliest stage, you can reduce the risk of serious complications, and preserve your vision. If the nerve is dead there is likely no cure and your goal should be to protect the other eye from having the same problem or new disease or injury.
