    Question:

    Is it normal to feel numbness in face and have balance problems after an ischemic optic neuropathy (when blood flow to optic nerve in back of the eye is interrupted)?


    Answer:

    No, such symptoms raise the possibility of other nerve involvement. You should have a complete evaluation by a neurologist.
