Eyes are sensitive organs, and loss of vision can make your life miserable. Inflammation of the spinal cord and optic nerve, known as neuromyelitis optica. is an autoimmune disorder, which can affect the function of the nerves. Excessive consumption of alcohol or tobacco, blocked or limited blood flow to the eyes, meningitis, sinusitis, or encephalitis may destroy the protective nerve coverings and affect the nerve function.
