Neuro-Ophthalmology Consultation

In the developing fetus, the eyes form as a direct extension of the brain. Essentially, eyes are brain tissue. Throughout life, the proper functioning of the eyes and clarity of the vision is intimately related to the brain. Problems in the central nervous system often show early manifestations in the visual system. For this reason, ophthalmologists are often involved in the diagnosis of nervous system problems. Common neuro-ophthalmic problems that would prompt a visit to an eye doctor would be the sudden loss of vision in one eye or the sensation of double vision. Neuro-ophthalmic problems are often quite alarming to the patient and warrant an urgent evaluation.
