In brief: Probably

Optic neuritis is not contagious, nor is it work related or aggravated by work.
If the status of the condition makes it visually difficult to do your work, you should hold off until it improves. Your work colleagues do not need to know of your condition unless the vision prevents work.

In brief: Optic neuritis

That depends on the extent of vision loss you experienced, the degree of recovery of visual acuity and visual field, and what visual demands are required at work.
Talk about this with your eye doctor.
