Neuro- ophthalmology is a part of both neurology and ophthalmology. Neuro ophthalmologists specify in vision problems that correlate to your nervous system. These issues include vision problems due to brain injuries or disorder, including trauma, a stroke, or an infection. Occasionally, these issues might not be a serious cause for concern, but other times, they can lead to more serious complications, like vision loss.
A neuro- ophthalmologist can diagnose and treat neurological and systemic disorder that affect your sight and the movement of your eyes. The tests they may give you include electroretinography, and multi-focal EGRs.
• Unforeseen drop or loss of vision
• Unforseen temporary loss of vision( called transient ischemic attack or eye stroke)
• Visual vision
• Double vision or presbyopia
• Intractable headaches
• Pupillary abnormalities( sluggish response, the difference in size of the pupils)
• Unforseseen onset of difficulties in recognize colors
• Incapability to tolerate bright light
• Visual Field deficiency
• Squint or hypermetropia ( especially adult onset)
It's a condition which presents as suddenly onset loss or drop in vision due to inflammation of the optical nerves. It can be due to an septicity, or an autoimmune response. Optic neuritis is habituality correlated with Multiple Sclerosis( MS).
Papilledema is characterized by the lump of the optical nerve head( the part of the optical nerves which can directly be seen by your eye consultant during a retinal evaluation) due to increased pressure from inside the brain. It may be due to cancer, infections like meningitis, encephalitis,etc.
The optical nerve may be damaged due to venomous substances set up in tobacco & alcohol. In fact, the optical nerve damage is frequently due to lack of nutrients and insufficiency of vitamin B- complex and folic acid as well. These also present as dropped vision.
A misalignment of the eye, especially when suddenly in onset, and associated with double vision is frequently due to paralysis of one or further of the small muscles of the eye, and is called paralytic strabismus. The eye shows limitations of optical movement as well.
Since the underpinning cause is diabetes, it's essential to treat the diabetes before it farther damages the nerves and other blood vessels.
After Checking the Sufferer's or patient complete medical history, former imaging studies, and current specifics list, a neuro- ophthalmologist might perform further tests, similar as
• Color test
• Evaluation of eye movements and optical alignment
• Imaging studies similar as a computed tomography( CT) checkup,(MRI), or an ultrasound
• Visual perceptivity
• Visual field testing
