Optic neuritis frequently misdiagnosed

When people in New Jersey are diagnosed with optic neuritis, a sometimes-painful inflammation of the optic nerve that can be accompanied by vision loss, they may begin to receive treatment right away. However, up to 60 percent of those patients may in fact have received a misdiagnosis. This could mean that they are receiving unnecessary treatment or not being treated for a real underlying cause. In one study of patients from a Midwestern university clinic, researchers reviewed the medical records of 122 optic neuritis patients referred to the clinic from 2014 to 2016.
