Optic nerve damage

I am from India. I have gone thru all the postings and my case is similar to some. I met with an accident around 15 years back in which the Optic nerve of my right eye got damaged and as a result I am having blurred vision in my right eye. I had consulted all the major eye specialists in the best of places in India previously but not now for the last maybe 7 years. I do not have any problem with my left eye which I keep checking up at intervals. My query is, technology is developing so many things detrimental to the destruction of mankind so why not something is being developed to resolve this issue of Optic nerve damage? I need your help in this doctor.

There are hundreds of researchers doing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of research all over the world on optic nerve regeneration. The optic nerve is brain tissue. Brain tissue does not try and regenerate when cut (like the spinal chord). When they can restore use to paralysed arms and legs from a cut spinal chord we may be able to help optic nerve injuries better.

You say many eye specialists say his eyes have no problem; then you say MRI shows optic nerve "shrinks?". Do you mean optic nerve hypoplasia? If so there is no treatment for that and every effort should be made to protect the other eye from injury or damage. He should be able to live a normal life and be a great student with one normal eye.

I had a craniotomy at J.Hopkins,word was that I had a lot of brain fluid. Actually it was watery and dripping from my nose. Doc's told me No,not possible for this to happen. Well? http://www.belgeinfo.com/joe-nagy-brain-fluid-leaking-arizona-man-loses-a-teaspoon-of-his-brain-25334-2013/
My visual cut is watery...it moves...it's like debris moving around. Your thoughts?

1. cerebro-spinal fluid draining from the nose is not unusual. It can happen after trauma/injury or after a number of different type of surgeries (nose, sinus, eye socket, brain, etc.)
2. I don't understand your second to the last sentence.
