Neuro-ophthalmology is the study of visual problems (loss of vision, double vision) related to neurologic disease. The student will learn to take a complete neurologic history, perform a basic eye exam with attention to the optic nerves and extra-ocular muscles. Special attention will be made to the generation of decision making, diagnostic algorithms, and differential diagnosis. Common entities studied include optic neuropathies, ocular motor cranial neuropathies, pupil abnormalities, nystagmus and visual field defects.
