Swelling of the optic nerves is often very serious. There are many causes and I can't generalize your answer. The important thing is to see the retina MD

I noticed a change in my left eyes ability to see clearly a week & half ago. I saw ophthalmology today, who refered me to a retina specialist immediately. I saw the retina specialist today, he noticed swollen in both optics nerves of my eyes. .He recommended that I consult with a neurologist immediately. I have an appt with mt neurologist tomorrow. Since, I came back from the retina specialist, the vision in my right is slighty blurred along with the left. In addition to this, I have slightly discomfort above my eyebrow http://www.medhelp.org/posts/new/583768#&; near my front lobe/  What should I expect?
