What are the Treatment Options for Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy (AION)?
September 4, 2010
My Father has been diagnosed for the second time with anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AION). The first time was 9 years ago and he lost 95% of his vision in that eye. He was not put on any pills and there was no follow up or therapy. This time even with his history they disregarded his concerns until 8 days into the problem. He is now on prednisone for a month. He is again, about 95% blind in that eye, now as well. Is there any hope that since he is on prednisone that his condition will improve somewhat? Is there anything else that can be done? We are at a loss as to what to do. He has been told nothing will change, and in fact has not been seen by the doctor since he was put on the pills 10 days ago.
