Optic Atrophy Causes, Symptoms, Side Effects & Treatment

Optic Atrophy occurs when the optic nerve gets damaged due to shrinkage by the degeneration of the retinal ganglion cell axons and stops carrying impulses from your eye to your brain. One of the most common reasons for the Atrophy (deuteriation) occurs due to poor blood flow and is more common in adults. Optic Atrophy causes multiple vision problems, eventually leading to the patient being blind.
