The article emphasizes the importance of long-term clinical follow-up and counseling by neuro-ophthalmologist to managing patients with optic neuritis, according to Dr. Fiona Costello during her presentation at the American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting held in San Francisco, California. Costello pointed out the significance of identifying symptoms, signs and the clinical mimics of optic neuritis and of exploring potential treatment options to effectively manage the disease. She also noted the value of testing for relative afferent pupillary defect.
