In brief: Optic neuritis
The main complication of optic neuritis is loss of vision.
If the optic neuritis is associated with multiple sclerosis many 'complications' are possible. For a more detailed explanation, see: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/optic_neuritis it may also be related to spinal cord disease, in neuromyelitis optica, in which case weakness or paralysis may also occur. There are also other causes.

In brief: Blindness
Not treated, blindness.
The more aggressive it is treated, the better the possibility of salvaging your vision.
