Medical evaluation: Most importantly, you must get an immediate, comprehensive medical evaluation to find possible causes and treat them. This is not a purely ocular problem - the underlying causes must be found.
As far as visual recovery is concerned, certain treatments, such as hyperbaric oxygen and intraocular pressure lowering, can help if done very promptly.
