Neuro-ophthalmology is the study of visual problems that relate to the nervous system. Such problems can include sight loss due to injury to the brain or the optic nerves which transmit visual signals from the eyes to the brain. The visual problems concerning neuro-ophthalmology do not come from the eyes themselves, but are injuries that can be caused by trauma, inflammation, strokes, tumors, toxicities, and infections. A neuro-ophthalmologist is a highly trained ophthalmologist who treats disorders such as optic nerve disease, vision loss, visual field loss due to tumor or stroke, double vision, ocular motility dysfunction related to diseases of the nervous system, papilledema, nystagmus, disorders of the lids and pupils, and intracranial hypertension.
