Neuro Ophthalmology

Neuro Ophthalmology is a specialty that concentrates on the neurological problems related to the eye.  The human eye captures the visuals it sees and transmits to the brain to be resolved as images. It is the optic nerve that transmits these visual stimuli and a dysfunction of this entity might cause visual impairment and could even lead to irreparable damage.

Neuro Ophthalmology – When should you visit your eye doctor?

Neuro Ophthalmic issues are quite a concern for doctors; for if not treated on time, it could result in Optic Nerve Atrophy (death of the optic nerve). Some of the most common signs of Optic Nerve Dysfunction include:

  • Reduced visual activity all of a sudden
  • Double vision and headaches
  • A less reactive pupil (pupil is the central part of eyeball that allows light to pass through)
  • Impairment of colour vision (especially inability to identify red & green colours)
  • Difficulty in seeing light (Photophobia)
  • Visual Field Defects (visibility coverage)

Benign Intracranial Hypertension (BIH) also called as Idiopathic Intracranial hypertension (IIH), is a neurological disorder that is characterized by increased intracranial pressure (pressure around the brain) in the absence of a tumor or other diseases. The main symptoms are stroke-like headache, nausea, and vomiting, as well as pulsatile tinnitus (sounds perceived in the ears, with the sound occurring in the same rhythm as the pulse), double vision and other visual symptoms. If untreated, it may lead to swelling of the optic disc in the eye, which can progress to vision loss which can be detected only by ophthalmologist.

Fundus Photography: We have an advanced imaging system by which all the details of the eye can be displayed on the screen at the same time during examination. This helps in better understanding of the disease for the patient about Diabetes, Hypertension, patients with long term steroid and Neuro-ophthamatic patients requires regular retinal screening.

Paediatric Refractive Clinic for special children: We do eye checkup for special children with Down’s syndrome and other Congenital Abnormalities. We provide solutions for their eye related problems.
