Other possible diagnoses include , low levels, or. However, for optic neuritis that is not MS-associated or atypical optic neuritis the evidence is less clear and therefore the threshold for treatment with intravenous is lower.

In an episode of "Season of Miracles", season five , Reverend Timothy Johnson is struck blind by optic neuritis on Christmas Day 1872. On medical examination the head of the optic nerve can easily be visualized by a slit lamp with a high positive lens or by using direct ophthalmoscopy; however, frequently there is no abnormal appearance of the nerve head in optic neuritis in cases of retrobulbar optic neuritis , though it may be swollen in some patients anterior papillitis or more extensive optic neuritis. Up to 50% of patients with MS will develop an episode of optic neuritis, and 20-30% of the time optic neuritis is the presenting. The Optic Neuritis Study Group". Intravenous corticosteroids also reduce the risk of developing MS in the following two years in patients with lesions; but this effect disappears by the third year of follow up.
