||Early diagnoses of nutritional or toxic optical neuropathies are of utmost importance, because visual impairment is still reversible at the early stages once the causal agent is identified. This diagnosis needs to be made with care, after other possible causes of progressive bilateral optical neuropathies have been eliminated, in particular those due to compressive mechanisms. The current proliferation of available drugs for use in general medical treatment increases the number described as being toxic to the optic nerve. Contents: clinical symptoms; positive diagnosis; medical examinations; causes of nutritional or toxic optical neuropathies.
