In brief: No
There is no reason to treat optic nerve drusen.
People who have them are completely unaware of them until an eye doctor told them they were present.

If optic nerve drusen are exceptionally large and are causing severe visual field loss then there are a few surgeons who have been able to remove them with some improvement in the visual field.
