Neuro Ophthalmology

Neuro-ophthalmologists take care of patients who have nervous system problems, or systemic problems that affect the eyes and the visual system.

These patients are usually complex and need a comprehensive eye examination. Your neuro-ophthalmologist might refer you for further testing including MRI and CT scans as well as blood work-up. They may also refer you to see another specialist such as a neurologist or a neurosurgeon.

If you’ve had any relevant scans, please bring the reports with you to your appointment.

Some of the conditions seen by neuro-ophthalmologists include:

  • Multiple sclerosis and optic neuritis
  • Neuroretinitis and optic nerve neuropathies such as NAION
  • Intracranial hypertension with papilloedema.
  • Eye movement disorders such cranial nerve dysfunctions that can cause double vision
  • Orbital problems such as thyroid eye disease
  • Visual field problems such as brain tumours, and post stroke visual field assessments.
  • Ocular myasthenia gravis
  • Botox treatments for blepharospasm.

Most of the neuro-ophthalmological treatments include addressing the underlying systemic or nervous problem as well treating the visual presentation. This usually involves co-managing your condition with your GP as well as other specialists looking after you. Management includes monitoring, medications and surgery
