Depends on cause: If optic neuritis, unilaterally, once steroids are finished, should resolve about 4 weeks in many cases. But, the blurring could be due to uveitis, optic atrophy, pars planitis, refraction problems, glaucoma, cataracts, and it would be of great value to have an ophthalmologist fully evaluate this. Many of the above problems can be successfully treated.

Unkown: Every case is different and their is no set answer. Often it can be permanent without any recovery. This needs to be evaluated and followed by an ophthalmologist. Even with return to any extent there can be relapses or other problems affecting vision. This can occur even with the ms in remission under treatment.
