Optic nerve repair possibilities

I had an eye injury that caused a a detached retina.  Following the surgery, there was damage to my optic nerve.  DR said the nerve was "gray and about 90% damaged".  Any options for repair?

Dear patch433,

I would speak with your eyeMD about the possibilities for repair. There is a lot of discussion about the potential for new treatments.
