Neuro-ophthalmology encompasses diseases of the optic nerves (the information highway that connects the eye to the visual processing center of the brain) and the nerves that control coordinated eye movements. There is a wide range of disorders that may require the opinion of a neuro-ophthalmologist, including: multiple sclerosis, stroke, head injury, and intra-cranial tumors. Patients with visual field defects, double vision, or decreased vision are often referred to neuro-ophthalmology.
