Neuro-Ophthalmology and Low Vision
Neuro-ophthalmology is a subspecialty that deals with problems of the eye related to the brain, nerves and muscles. Some of the common conditions evaluated by neuro-ophthalmologists include optic neuritis, visual field loss, unexplained or transient visual loss, double vision and abnormal eye movements. Our service can provide you possible treatment and management strategies in addressing these conditions.
In cases where vision loss cannot be corrected by medical means, surgical treatments or the conventional eyeglasses, the Low Vision Service offers Low Vision screening with low vision refraction, color deficiency evaluation and contrast sensitivity testing to document the vision impairment prior to proceeding to vision rehabilitation. For these patients, the goal is to teach new strategies and match optical devices that will hopefully maximize their remaining vision in order to cope with their activities of daily living.
