Any new developments to restore the optic nerve

Posted by @dancer381, Sun, Oct 14 8:10pm

My friend is legally blind. One eye is calcifying and the other only has 5% of the optic nerve left. Please update any new procedures to stimulate or regrow the optic nerve in the US.

Hi @dancer381 unfortunately the news isn't great in this regard.
Here are a couple of resources for you:

Gloucoma Research Foundation on Optic Nerve Regneration: https://www.glaucoma.org/research/optic-nerve-regeneration-1.php

List results to clinical trials when searching Optic Nerve: https://www.mayo.edu/research/clinical-trials/search-results?keyword=optic%20nerve&status=open-unknown
