neuropati optik, trauma


Traumatic optic neuropathy (TON) is an optic nerve injury caused by direct and indirect head and facial trauma. The pathogenesis of TON has not been fully elucidated, and the management of TON remains controversial. This article will review the current literature on TON and discuss how to manage direct and indirect TON. Studies have shown that observation, steroid therapy, surgery, or a combination of these are the cornerstones of current management, but the statistical significance of supporting a specific approach to TON is not fully understood. However, it is likely that new management strategies will emerge because a wider range of different types of cell injury are at play in TON. More research is urgently needed in the future to gain a better understanding of TON.
