Neuro-Ophthalmology Service is staffed by experienced, skilled specialists who work with a patient's referring physician to manage their condition or illness.
The optic nerve is the means by which the eye and brain communicate. Illnesses or medical conditions that affect the eye-brain connection are treated by neuro-ophthalmologists. These specialists diagnose and treat disorders that affect the nerves and muscles in and around the eye and also treat the ocular manifestations of glandular conditions, such as thyroid eye disease (Graves' eye disease) as well as autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis (MS), and other diseases such as Parkinson's disease.
In addition to the conditions listed above, the neuro-ophthalmologists at VisionHealthalso treat optic neuropathy, myasthenia gravis, and the ocular disorders that may occur with brain tumors, AIDS and stroke.
