Neuromyelitis optica also known as Devic disease, is a very rare autoimmune disorder that affects the nerves of your eyes and the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. Autoimmune disorders occur when the immune system malfunctions and attacks your body’s own tissues and organs. In neuromyelitis optica, the autoimmune attack causes inflammation of the optic nerve (optic neuritis) and inflammation of the spinal cord (myelitis) and the resulting damage leads to wide range of symptoms, such as weakness, blindness, nerve pain and muscle spasms. These will vary from person to person – some may only have one attack of symptoms and recover well, whereas others may be more severely affected and have a number of attacks that lead to disability. In its early stages, neuromyelitis optica may be confused with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Neuromyelitis optica is characterized by optic neuritis, which is inflammation of the nerve that carries information from the eye to the brain (optic nerve). Optic neuritis causes eye pain and vision loss, which can occur in one or both eyes.
