Optic nerve atrophy (ONA) is a condition in which the optic nerve, a group of nerves that transmits visual information from the eye to the brain, deteriorates or is damaged. ONA may be brought on by hereditary factors, trauma (including stroke), a reduction in blood flow or oxygen, infections, or diseases. An eye exam might reveal the excessively pale appearance of these nerves, which is caused by atrophy.

Signs of Optic Nerve Atrophy include:

  • Cloudy vision.
  • A decline in visual function, such as a loss of visual acuity—the ability to see clearly—or a loss of peripheral (side) vision.
  • Weak pupil constriction in light.
  • A decrease in one eye’s brightness in comparison to the other.
  • Modification of the optic disc.

We have perfected the technology at the Medtravellers Research Centre for isolating the greatest amount of viable stem cells from an autologous source (Bone Marrow and Adipose). Depending on the recommendation of our expert, these cells are administered via any of the techniques listed below:

Retrobulbar Administration: Cells are pumped into the retina of the eye using this method.

If injected back into the eye, these cells can develop the microenvironment required to replace the macula’s damaged or dead cells with fresh cells and repair the damaged nerve.
