Optic neuritis (ON) is an acute inflammatory, demyelinating attack of the optic nerve that triggers neurodegeneration in the entire visual pathway; translating into visual dysfunction. Currently, no neuroprotective therapy with satisfying evidence can be offered to patients. Repetitive transorbital alternating current stimulation (rtACS) is a methodology applied to electrically stimulate the retina and the optic nerve and is considered having neuroprotective- and restorative potential. The goal of this pilot study is to assess safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of rtACS as a treatment to improve visual functional as well as structural retinal outcomes in patients with a first-ever episode of autoimmune acute ON.
