Abstract: Non-Arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy (NAAION) is the most common optic neuropathy and often results in severe visual loss. Although, various therapies have been tried, there is still many patients with NAAION suffer from visual loss. This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of stellate ganglion block and stellate ganglion block combined with ozone autohemotherapy on NAAION. Forty NAAION patients who were scheduled to receive stellate ganglion block and stellate ganglion block combined with ozone autohemotherapy in the hospital were recruited from January to December 2012. Evaluations of vision and visual fields were made. This study showed that stellate ganglion block and stellate ganglion block combined with ozone autohemotherapy both had positive effects on the patients vision and visual fields. The therapeutic effect of SGB combined with ozone autohemotherapy is superior to SGB alone.
