Who Needs Neuro-Ophthalmology?

Neuro-ophthalmologists often see people with the following conditions (and many others):

  • Optic nerve disease
  • Visual field loss
  • Unexplained vision loss
  • Double vision
  • Eye movement problems
  • Thyroid eye disease
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Unequal pupil size
  • Eyelid abnormalities

Neuro-ophthalmologists specialize in many cranial nerves, which are sensory and motor nerves arising from the brainstem, that control vision and eye movement.  Neuro-ophthalmologists also evaluate certain types of vision problems associated with systemic disease.  Talk with your doctor if you think that you have a condition that may need a neuro-ophthalmology evaluation!
