Any new developments to restore the optic nerve

Posted by dancer381 @dancer381, Oct 14, 2018

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.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Eye Conditions group.

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
