Endoscopic Optic Nerve Decompression is a critical procedure that is carried out on patients who have various eye problems like tumours, loss of vision and so on. During this surgery, the bony canal which guards the optic nerve is removed, not completely but some parts of it. This nerve connects the brain to the eye, thereby making us see objects. If anything happens to the nerve, for example, swelling, then the bony canal prevents it from expanding further. This requires surgery because the canal is then needed to be removed instantly. This surgery releases pressure on the nerve and vision is improved considerably after this.
There haven’t been a lot of definite causes for this problem, but there are some that are identified. These are as follows.
This surgery has tons of benefits and one time investment in it leads to a very clear vision. It’s a delicate surgery, but at the end of the day, it’s always worth it.
