optic nerve detachment

Can a detached optic nerve be corrected!
284078 tn?1282620298
A detached optic nerve is usually a terrible problem and caused sometimes by a bad blunt trauma.  I know of no way to fix a seriously damaged optic nerve.  Maybe someday far in the future there might be some type of stem cell treatment. Sorry.
