The super-speciality field of neuro-ophthalmology combines the areas of ophthalmology and neurology. Neuro-ophthalmologists are in charge of the diagnosis and treatment of complex systemic neurological illnesses that influence pupillary reflexes, eye movements, and vision. A neuro-ophthalmologist should be consulted for the treatment of some major eye conditions like Optic Neuritis, Papilledema, Toxic or Nutritional Optic Neuropathy, Squint, etc. Issues with the neuro-ophthalmic system should be taken seriously since, if untreated, they could lead to atrophy of the optic nerve (death of the optic nerve).
At Abate Eye Hospital, our neurosurgeons ensure that every patient receives excellent care and is well looked after by the team. Our highly skilled specialists ensure that the root of the issue is quickly recognised and treated as necessary thanks to our dedicated neuro-ophthalmology section on staff.
After a thorough eye exam, your eye doctor will usually advise you to see a neuro-ophthalmologist in case you require specialised care. Such a recommendation is frequently prompted by signs of illnesses of the optic nerve or the optic nerve itself. Other causes include conditions that influence the eye’s pupils and specific types of squint. In order to determine whether there is any damage to the brain, a brain CT scan or an MRI is often performed. Other diseases could need surgery, even though some can be addressed with oral medicines and injectables.
At Abate Eye Hospital, our skilled staff of neuro-ophthalmologists not only treats complex instances of neuro-ophthalmic diseases daily but also places a high priority on saving the patients’ vision.
