Diagnosing & Treating Visual Manifestations in Neurological Conditions

How are visual manifestations diagnosed?

Visual manifestations may come on suddenly or develop over time. They may be mild or debilitating. Common types include: 


  • Headaches or facial pain
  • Double vision
  • Drooping eyelids
  • Pupil abnormalities
  • Vision loss


There are many conditions that can affect your sight and eye health. In some cases, visual manifestations may have relatively harmless causes that clear up on their own. In other cases, the causes are more serious, including stroke, trauma, tumors and multiple sclerosis.

Because there are so many symptoms and possible causes, effective treatment hinges on discovering and managing the underlying disorder. This is where our neuro-ophthalmologists — doctors who specialize in brain issues that affect vision — excel. 

Working as a specialist team, we will get to the bottom of your symptoms and decide the best course of action. At Houston Methodist, you have access to advanced technology and the latest treatment options. 

What treatments are available?

Treatment recommendations vary depending on your diagnosis, health, age and other factors. For example, your care plan may involve advanced therapy after a stroke, surgery to remove a tumor or treatment for hypertension. Medication also can help alleviate some of the effects of visual manifestations. In some cases, surgery can repair damage to the eye.

I need advanced care or a second opinion.

Whether you are looking for a diagnosis, treatment alternatives or a second opinion, we’re here to help.
