Central nerve eye occlusion

I have had a central nerve eye occlusion diagnosed last month and have since been treated with a cortisone shot, followed by laser traetment. I should see the retina specialist again in two weeks. My question is; If the nerve is still blocked, will I ever be able to use air as my travel option again?
At the moment I am on short term disability from work due to lifting or strenuous tasks.
Does this condition bring risk to the other eye?

Your diagnosis in not one that is recognized. I suspect that you have a central retinal vein or central retinal artery occlusion.  "Occlusion" is not a term applied to a nerve.

Yes, it is central retinal vein occlusion.  I am also being treated for high blood pressure which averages 155/ 100, and cholestrol a month ago was 257.  
Any response for the use of air travel in the near future?

Thank you

Your blood pressure is way too high as is your cholesteral. If you are overweight and smoke you are at extreme risk of heart attack, stroke, death, more eye damage.

See a good Internist and work your way back to good health.

Air travel does not affect CRVO.
