Traumatic optic neuropathy (TON) is a degenerative process that occurs in a subset of patients following blunt force trauma to the head. This condition is characterized by retinal ganglion cell (RGC) death and axon degeneration within the optic nerve [1]. At the cellular level, mitochondrial changes are associated with many optic neuropathies [2, 3]. Here, we provide a dataset demonstrating changes in the optic nerve mitochondrial lipid profile of a sonication-induced traumatic optic neuropathy (SI-TON) mouse model at 1, 7, and 14 days after injury. 32 C57BL/6J mice were separated into 4 groups (control, 1, 7, and 14 days) of 8, with 4 males and 4 females in each. Mice were exposed to sonication-induced trauma as described previously (by Tao et al) and optic nerves were harvested at 1, 7, or 14 days following injury [4]. Mitochondria were isolated from homogenized optic nerves and lipids were extracted. Extracted mitochondrial lipids were analysed with a Q-Exactive Orbitrap Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer (LC MS-MS). Further analysis of raw data was conducted with LipidSearch 4.1.3 and Metaboanalyst 4.0. This data is publicly available at the Metabolomics Workbench, (Project ID: PR000905).
