The Optic Neuritis Market was substantial in size in 2020 and is projected to experience a rapid increase in revenue CAGR from 2021 to 2028. Key drivers for this growth include the presence of well-established healthcare infrastructure and favorable reimbursement policies worldwide.

Optic neuritis, also known as optic papillitis and retro tubular neuritis, refers to the inflammation of the optic nerve. It is commonly associated with multiple sclerosis and can lead to partial or complete vision loss. During its early stages, optic neuritis may be diagnosed alongside other diseases such as hyperkalemia and Diabetes mellitus. The major symptoms of optic neuritis encompass partial or complete vision loss, blurred vision, eye pain, and others.

In most instances, the primary symptoms of optic neuritis consist of sensitivity to light (photophobia), redness in the eyes, and decreased night vision. Optic neuritis can be classified into two types based on the age group of patients: adult optic neuritis and pediatric optic neuritis. The inflammation of the optic nerve disrupts its proper functioning and can lead to vision loss due to the destruction of the myelin sheath connected to the optic nerve.

Approximately 40% to 50% of patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) experience optic neuritis, and around 30% of those with optic neuritis display signs of multiple sclerosis. A research study conducted by NCBI in 2021 revealed that the risk of optic neuritis is higher in individuals aged between 20 to 40 years.
