What is Neuro Opthalmology?

Neuro-Ophthalmology is a specialty that serves as a vital bridge between neurology and ophthalmology, addressing various nervous system diseases that affect normal vision. These conditions, referred to as neuro-visual diseases, can vary in complexity and symptoms, and they can affect individuals of all age groups. If left untreated, they may lead to complete visual impairment.

What are the different conditions treated under Neuro Ophthalmology?

Conditions treated in Neuro Opthalmology 

  • Optic Neuritis: Gradual vision loss due to optic nerve inflammation, often linked to multiple sclerosis. Risk factors include severe infection and autoimmune disorders.
  • Papilloedema: Swelling in the optic nerve caused by increased pressure in the skull due to tumours, infections, encephalitis, or other conditions.
  • Toxic Optic Neuropathy: Optic nerve damage resulting from exposure to toxic substances found in food and drinks.
  • Strabismus: Abnormal eye alignment due to paralysis of eye muscles, restricting ocular movement.
  • Diabetic Neuropathy: Severe optic nerve damage caused by uncontrolled diabetes, leading to progressive vision loss.
Recognising the Symptoms of Neuro-Visual Disorders
  • Abrupt loss of vision (partial or complete)
  • Transient vision loss (eye stroke)
  • Visual hallucinations
  • Persistent headaches
  • Double vision
  • Sudden onset of color blindness
  • Increased sensitivity to light
