Optic neuritis: Optic neuritis, inflammation of the optic nerve that sends vision signals from the eye to the brain, is a rare complication of paranasal sinusitis. The sphenoid sinus makes up part of the bony cavity that holds the eye and an infection or inflammation can spread and affect the optic nerve and cause vision loss. It is rare.
