Optic Nerve Avulsion
Optic nerve avulsion is when the optic nerve is literally ripped from the eye itself. It typically occurs when an object forcefully intrudes between the orbit wall and the eye. The most common causes of optic nerve avulsion are: car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, falls and sporting injuries.
Unfortunately, optic nerve avulsion is a permanent injury with no available treatment. In addition to the loss of sight in the injured eye, victims of this injury must wear appropriate eye protection for the uninjured eye.
