In brief: Vision loss

Optic atrophy is the result of neuron cell death, with resultant loss of vision.
The more loss of neurons, the more vision loss. Optic atrophy is a clinical sign, not a diagnosis, as many optic nerve diseases may lead to neuronal degeneration (atrophy) and vision loss.

In brief: Blindness

The optic nerve is what lets you see.
The more it atrophies, the more vision you lose.
