Optic Nerve ProblemI have very poor vision and cannot be corrected with eyeglasses. I have 4.0 power in both eyes and the basic problem is that, even after wearing the glasses, my vision is very poor.
Increasing the power of the glasses is of no help because the doctors mentioned that I have a very weak optic nerve. Don't know if it is damaged. I have been to several ophthalmologists/neurologists and they mentioned that they couldnt do anything.
I had an injury to my right eye (near eye brow) when I was very young. Don't know if this was the root cause of the problem. I cannot recall having clear vision anytime.
I was wondering if homeopathy could help me to correct this problem.

No promises. Optic nerve damage usually permanent. Have you been x-rayed to see if there is a growth, etc?
Treating the injury, depending on what it was, may be possible. If part of the cause of today's condition.....?

I am now 35 years old and been managing with this problem ever since. I had an MRI done in 1992 per the request of a Neurologist. Can't recall if they mentioned any growth.
Ophthalmologists mention that my eyes are O.K and the problem lies with the weakness of my optic nerve. Neurologists say they cannot do anything. I cannot recall having a clear vision and I don't know if this incident is the root cause.

ARNICA and LEDUM together for 5 doses in 5 days. 1M potency.
Arnica at night, one dose Ledum in morning, one dose.
Clean mouth, no toothpaste or foods. (Half hour before or after.) Do not take with water. Let little balls or pellets melt under tongue. 3 to 5 pellets is one dose. In homeopathy, the least taken is best. Here,I am suggesting more doses than usual because of the time element.
Arnica is chosen because it can be used many years after the original injury. Ledum is for many things; puncture wounds here.
PHOSPHORUS is listed for homeopathic treatment of atrophy of optic nerve. After 7 days you could take 3 doses of Phos. 30C. (not Phos acid)
One dose per night for 3 days.
Wait another week to see if there is any activity you would want to report. Even a small clue would be important.
There are a bunch of other remedies for optic nerve, but this is most commonly used.
Please keep us posted. Remember you are taking some homeopathic remedies by mouth that will be in the entire body. We want to know how all is working together.
Homeopathy has a habit of releasing suppression in the body from other medicines, so actually this is a good sign, but sometimes hard to deal with. Yes, it is safe.
If there is discomfort, stop and wait longer between doses. Do not take Phos until few days after finished with the first two.

Everything is curable - but some ailments may be extremely difficult. Those that basically have NO clear cut symptoms.
Blurred vision has tens of remedies (and only one will cure). Nothing makes it worse/better, I guess.No other symptoms.
This is from Boericke (one of the simplest repertories=books in which symptoms are matched to remedies-anyway, there are many more remedies now-this is just an example)

I don't want to discourage you. But I also didn't want you to have false hopes. Please if you do take homeopathic medicine and experience a difference please post.

I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Can you tell me about your accident? And I believe the optic nerve didn't get served.
Has there been any improvement since then?
I am no doctor but I have faced the same situation recently.
I met with a bike accident on 28th Feb 2016 which made my optic nerve smaller
according to doctors.
I have noticed improvements recently compared to how it was before, I don't know to what extent it got
My OCT scan showed MILD REDUCTION IN RNFL THICKNESS IN TEMPORAL QUADRANT and some more dialysis.
Praying for healing.
If there is anything I could be of help do let me know. And I would at the
same time appreciate any suggestions from you.
Please mail me getting my mail from profile.
