There are variety of conditions that require neuro-ophthalmologic treatment. If you are diagnosed, our specialists will take the time to educate you on the condition affecting your eyes and the best route for treatment.
Often associated with a droopy eyelid, some patients have problems moving their eyes and experience blurry or double vision.
Some neuro-ophthalmological patients might experience an unexplained loss of vision. Our doctors can use advanced testing in the office, often combined with traditional CT or MRI technology, to diagnose the reason for vision loss and initiate a plan to maximize visual recovery.
Optic neuritis is swelling of the eye’s optic nerve that causes unclear vision. It occurs more frequently in viral conditions like mumps, measles, or flu. It can also have an association with multiple sclerosis
Posterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy (PION) can cause vision loss in patients who are over 50, and may be at higher risk for glaucoma. This condition may be related to conditions like hypertension and diabetes, but also can be related to severe and sometimes life-threatening systemic conditions.
Patients experiencing Proptosis often see a protrusion of the eyeball, often associated with Grave’s Disease, Hyperthyroidism, Cushing Disease and obesity.
Some patients can still experience blind spots and “angular” vision in one eye after treatment of various other conditions. While these may be local to the eye, in some cases this can be secondary to problems behind the eye or within the brain.
Bell’s palsy is a nerve condition that weakens or paralyzes the muscles on one side of the face, and causes eye twitching, inability to fully close the eyelid, and watery eyes. Symptoms are often treated with tear drops or Botox injections.
Papilledema is a buildup of pressure around the brain that causes the optic nerve to swell. It’s often caused by head trauma, extremely high blood pressure, inflammation within the brain or a brain tumor. Symptoms can include visual disturbances, headaches, and nausea.
