In brief: Yes

It depends on the cause, but most people can return to activity with optic neuritis.
The treatment should not affect your ability to work. If your doctor tells you to rest your eyes or cover the eyes, you should do so.

In brief: Optic neuritis

Depends on how much recovery of vision occurs after treatment and whether this might affect your ability to perform your usual job responsibilities.
