Neuro-Ophthalmology

Neuro-ophthalmology is the incorporation of neurology and ophthalmology, often dealing with complex systemic diseases that have manifestations in the visual system. Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI) includes all visual dysfunctions caused by damage to, or malfunctioning of, the retrochiasmatic visual pathways in the absence of damage to the anterior visual pathways or any major ocular disease. Myasthenia gravis is caused by a breakdown in the normal communication between nerves and muscles which leads to double vision, drooping eyelids and other muscles weakness which effecting the both i.e. neuromuscular activity and also vision. On the other hand nystagmus which is involuntary eye movement acquired in infancy or later in life that may result in reduced or limited vision. Factors like cerebral macular degeneration and chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia also the major effecting part of neuro-ophthalmology. Diagnostic tools in neuro-ophthalmology are used to investigate and to treat the various condition of neuro-ophthalmology as Neonatal ocular examination are primarily performed to monitor the presence and progression of Retinopathy of Prematurity. University of Pennsylvania is currently working on neuro-ophthalmology project.
