Neuro Ophthalmology

Neuro-Ophthalmology is a super specialty that merges the fields of neurology and ophthalmology. Which is very advanced specialisation.

Neuro-ophthalmologists are responsible for the diagnosis and management of complex systemic diseases of the nervous system that affect vision, eye movements and alignment, as well as pupillary reflexes.

Some of the common symptoms.
● Sudden decrease or loss of vision
● Sudden transient loss of vision (called transient ischemic attack or eye stroke)
● Visual hallucinations
● Double vision or diplopia
● Intractable headaches
● Pupillary abnormalities (sluggish reaction, the difference in size of the pupils)
● Sudden onset of difficulties in identifying colours
● Inability to tolerate bright light
● Visual Field Defects
● Squint or strabismus (especially adult onset)

Our doctor tests with the comprehensive eye examination to diagnose disease diagnosis. In addition to this, our doctor will also advise one or more of these special tests to conclude to plan your treatment like:

● Orthoptic evaluation
● Evaluation of ocular movements
● Diplopia charting
● Neurological visual fields screening
● Optical coherence tomography of the optic nerve head
● Evaluation of contrast sensitivity and colour vision
● Imaging studies including CT scan, MRI and MR venogram.

Dr J.J.Praveenwill ideally pick up an optic nerve issue during an eye examination. A brain CT scan or an MRI is then typically done to assess whether there is associated damage in the brain as well.

This condition eventually leads to the death of the optic nerve, if left untreated.
