The field of neuro-ophthalmology examines problems that affect either the brain's interpretation of what is seen by the eyes or the brain's coordination of eye movements. Loss of vision and double vision are two common neuro-ophthalmologic complaints.
Diagnosis and treatment often require interaction with neurologists and neurosurgeons. Neuro-imaging of the brain and orbits, using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans, is often valuable in diagnosing and monitoring these types of problems.
