Optical Nerve Damage

My Father is 61 year old and lost his one eye after an eye operation, he was suffering from glaucoma, the first eye has turned dry and green and also shrinked. Now after an year he also lost the vision from his second eye due to optical nerve damage. He is diabatic, Is there any cure or any treatment to get his vision back, Please advice? We live in India and I've been looking for his treatment across the world. I have seen articals saying the research is happening to repair the optical nerve somewhere in US however not sure if the research is complete and sucessfull. Please help !!

If you have seen several ophthalmologists in India and they have not been able to do anything for him it is very unlikely that traveling to any place else in the world would be helpful. Indian ophthalmologists are very skilled. There is not much new or encouraging about optic nerve damage repair.

Sorry this is not enough detail to answer your question. It's too vague.
