Bringing you the latest news & resources in eye health
A neuro-ophthalmologist is an ophthalmologist who has undertaken further specialist training in brain and nervous system disorders that affect the eye and vision.
A stroke can damage the blood vessels that supply the brain and optic nerve, resulting in loss of vision. The nerves that make the eyes move can also be damaged. The type of vision loss depends on the part of the brain affected by stroke. Some people experience blurred vision, double vision or a loss of side (peripheral) vision.
Blind spots and blurred vision are symptoms of many eye conditions. Multiple sclerosis can only be diagnosed after a range of tests. Consult your optometrist or GP if you have any issues with your eyes or vision.
Your doctor or optometrist may decide to refer you to a neuro-ophthalmologist if they suspect a neurological disorder is contributing to your loss of vision or eye problems.
