Don’t let vision problems impact your quality of life. Trust our neuro ophthalmology specialists to diagnose and treat complex eye conditions and restore your sight.

Neuro ophthalmology is a subspecialty of ophthalmology that focuses on visual problems related to the nervous system. It involves the evaluation and management of visual disturbances that are associated with neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, and stroke. The field also covers a wide range of eye conditions that affect the optic nerve, extraocular muscles, and eyelids, among others.

Neuro ophthalmologists are specialized eye doctors who have undergone additional training in neurology and ophthalmology. They work closely with other medical specialists, such as neurologists, neurosurgeons, and radiologists, to provide comprehensive care to patients with complex neuro ophthalmic conditions.

Some common conditions that neuro ophthalmologists manage include optic neuritis, papilledema, idiopathic intracranial hypertension, double vision, nystagmus, and eye movement disorders. Diagnostic tests that are often used in the evaluation of neuro ophthalmic disorders include visual field testing, optical coherence tomography (OCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and computed tomography (CT) scans. Treatment approaches vary depending on the underlying cause of the condition and may include medications, surgery, or referral to other medical specialists for further evaluation and management.

FAQ

What is neuro ophthalmology?

Neuro ophthalmology is a specialized field of medicine that deals with visual problems related to the nervous system, particularly the brain and the optic nerve. It involves the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of conditions that affect the connection between the eyes and the brain, such as optic neuritis, optic neuropathy, double vision, and visual field defects. Neuro-ophthalmologists work closely with neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other specialists to provide comprehensive care for their patients.

What are neuro ophthalmology symptoms?

Neuro ophthalmology symptoms are related to the visual system and the brain’s function and include double vision, vision loss, eye movement disorders, headaches, and more. These symptoms may be caused by a variety of conditions such as optic neuritis, idiopathic intracranial hypertension, stroke, brain tumors, and multiple sclerosis, among others. A neuro-ophthalmologist is trained to diagnose and manage these conditions and to work in collaboration with other specialists to optimize patient outcomes. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to preventing permanent vision loss and neurological damage.

What do neuro ophthalmologists treat?

Neuro-ophthalmologists are specialized eye doctors who treat vision problems related to the nervous system. They diagnose and manage visual problems that are caused by neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, and strokes. Neuro-ophthalmologists work closely with neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other specialists to provide comprehensive care for patients with neurological and ophthalmic disorders. They also treat conditions such as optic neuritis, idiopathic intracranial hypertension, and double vision.

What is the difference between neurologist and neuro ophthalmologist?

A neurologist is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, and nerves throughout the body. They typically treat a wide range of neurological conditions, including but not limited to headaches, seizures, strokes, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease. On the other hand, a neuro-ophthalmologist is a specialist who focuses on the neurological aspects of vision and eye movement. They evaluate and treat conditions that affect the visual pathways, which can include a wide range of neurological conditions that affect the eyes and the brain, such as optic neuritis, papilledema, idiopathic intracranial hypertension, and double vision. While both neurologists and neuro-ophthalmologists deal with neurological conditions, their focus and expertise differ. Neurologists have a broader scope and deal with a wider range of neurological conditions, while neuro-ophthalmologists specialize in the neurological aspects of vision and eye movement.
