Our specialists diagnose and treat patients with often difficult-to-diagnose neuro-ophthalmologic symptoms:
- Cognitive disorders that affect vision
- Ocular motility disturbances
- Optic neuritis
- Optic nerve disorders
- Optic nerve tumors
- Visual manifestations of neurologic and neurosurgical disease
Correct identification of neuro-ophthalmologic conditions is a major hurdle because the symptoms are linked to so many diseases. Headache, facial pain and blurred vision are all common in neuro-ophthalmologic disorders. Moreover, diagnosis is especially important because neuro-ophthalmological disorders are often indicative of other serious underlying diseases, such as multiple sclerosis , diabetes , Lyme disease or stroke . This is where Houston Methodist’s specialists in neuro-ophthalmology excel.
At Houston Methodist an interdisciplinary team of doctors, including neurosurgeons, neurologists, ophthalmologists and oncologists , work together to ensure the highest quality of patient care.
