Neuroretinitis can be broadly classified as:
- Infectious Neuroretinitis, or
- Idiopathic Neuroretinitis - in which no clear infectious or inflammatory etiology is found
Treatment is usually directed at addressing the cause of theneuroretinitis, e.g. of the infection in the case of infectious neuroretinitis. Antibiotics may be used to treat infectious neuroretinitis while corticosteroids are sometimes used to treat idiopathic neuroretinitis. Where possible neuroretinitis is generally treated by a specialist in ophthalmology, i.e. an ophthalmologist.
