Variable: All ms pts are different, and the course of the illness varies. You do not indicate whether you are taking disease modifying medication, and would wonder if your meds are controlling the problems. However, you may have transitioned to a secondary progressive phase which would explain absence of relapses. Seek out an ms specialist and devise an approach for the future. Best of luck.

It is normal: The clinical course of ms (demyelinating disease) is variable in terms of episodes of optic neuropathy. Some patients have frequent attacks for a few years and then may go years without further episodes. If you are on medication for ms, this can alsoi alter the frequency of exacerbations.
