Neuro - Ophthalmology
Neuro-Ophthalmology is a peer-reviewed medical journal that covers diagnostic methods in neuro-ophthalmology such as visual fields, CT scanning and electrophysiology, the visual system such as the retina, oculomotor system, pupil, neuro-ophthalmic aspects of the orbit, and related fields such as migraine and ocular manifestations of neurological diseases.
Neuro-ophthalmology is the sub-speciality of ophthalmology that deals with diseases related to the optic nerve and the brain.
Some common diseases that a neuro-ophthalmologist may see include optic neuritis (inflammation of the optic nerve), optic neuropathy, papilledema (optic disc edema), ocular myasthenia gravis, brain tumors affecting vision, idiopathic intracranial hypertension or pseudo tumor cerebri, unexplained visual loss, headaches and double vision.
We, at Spectra Eye, are equipped with the latest electrophysiology machines (VER, ERG, and multifocal ERG) to diagnose and monitor these complex disorders.
