1 doctor agrees

In brief: Usually not

Optic atrophy is due to a disruption of the structure of the optic nerve or its blood supply which leads to lowered vision and in the worst cases loss of all vision.
There is no known surgical treatment for this condition and unfortunately few medical options as well. Consult with a neuro-ophthalmologist for a discussion of this condition.
