definition of lumbosacral neuritis?

See below: Neuritis means inflammation of a nerve, but we would not usually describe lumbosacral nerve problems by that term. Might instead use radiculitis or radiculopathy. Not sure of what context this was introduced, but perhaps this refers to pain radiating from your spine down a leg. If occurring after back surgery, perhaps post-op scarring or arachnoiditis.

Pain,visual loss: Pain is usual in the affected eye and is aggravated by eye movement. Visual loss is commonly progressive, though initially it is blurring of vision. This may progress to a field/altitudinal defect. The pupil may be dilated and sluggish to react to light. Loss of visual acuity varies from none to loss of perception of light. Good visual acuity is regained after the initial attack, with exceptions.

Blurred vision: The hallmarks of optic neurits are blurred vision (decreased acuity), darkening of vision with loss of color perception, and local tenderness or pain with movement suggesting an intra-orbital inflammatory process. There are multiple causes of optic neuritis, it can affect one or both eyes, and the etiologies are somewhat age related. The patient may be aware of a blind spot in the affected eye.
