A 30-year-old male asked:

Can sudden peripheral vision loss due to optic nerve head drusen reverse, change in severity or fully recover?

Not typical!: Optic nerve he'd drusens are associated with field loss sometimes, but they are chronic and stable. I am not aware of them being associated with sudden loss. Look for a different cause! depending on the that, it may or may not be reversible (most likely not).
