The presenting symptoms include visual loss, dyschromatopsia, and periocular pain, especially with eye movement. Lancet ; Diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis: J Clin Neurosci ; An important and unexpected finding of the study was that the IV methylprednisolone group had a reduced risk of a secondary demyelinating event of any kind for the first 2 years after treatment compared to the other two treatment groups; however, this protective effect was lost by year 3 and at all subsequent time points.
