Wills Eye Neuro-Ophthalmology Service
Wills Eye neuro-ophthalmologists are world leaders in the diagnosis, and treatment of vision problems related to the nervous system. We specialize in the eye-brain connection and evaluate conditions such as optic neuritis, visual field loss, visual disturbances, abnormal eye movements, thyroid eye disease, and myasthenia gravis.
The optic nerve is the means by which the eye and brain communicate. Illnesses or medical conditions that affect the eye-brain connection are treated by neuro-ophthalmologists. These specialists diagnose and treat disorders that affect the nerves and muscles in and around the eye and also treat thyroid eye disease (Graves' eye disease) as well as autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis (MS), and other diseases such as Parkinson's disease.
In addition to the conditions listed above, the neuro-ophthalmologists at Wills Eye also treat optic neuritis, optic neuropathy, myasthenia gravis, transient visual loss, double vision, pituitary adenoma, and the ocular disorders that may occur with brain tumors, AIDS and stroke.
A variety of diagnostic studies will be incorporated into a patient's treatment to thoroughly evaluate a condition, including:
- Visual fields
- CT and MRI scanning
- Color flow Doppler vascular imaging as well as vascular imaging of the carotid, vertebral and basilar arteries
- Spectral domain and MultiColor optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optical coherence tomographic angiography (OCT-A)
