In brief: Optic neuritis

This is a very old question, which has been looked at in some detail.
The answer is there is no specific food, or supplement or vitamin which is good for or prevents optic neuritis.

In brief: Maybe

If the optic neuritis was caused by multiple sclerosis, it is best to take potent disease modifying items, such as Gilenya or tysabri, (natalizumab) and supplement vitamin d-3, but would not hurt to go onto a low fat diet, such as the swank diet.
However, many cases of optic neuritis are due to other causes and diet unlikely to help there.
