Neuro-ophthalmology


Neuro-ophthalmology, a subspecialty of both neurology and ophthalmology, is the treatment of visual problems that are related to the nervous system that is, visual problems that do not come from the eyes themselves. We use almost half of the brain for vision-related activities. Neuro-ophthalmologists undergo specialized training and expertise in problems of the eye, brain, nerves and muscles. These physicians complete at least five years of clinical training after medical school and are usually board-certified in neurology, ophthalmology, or both. Neuro-ophthalmologists have unique abilities to evaluate patients from the neurologic, ophthalmologic, and medical standpoints to diagnose and treat a wide variety of problems.
