School of Medicine
The Neuro-Ophthalmology division of the Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute specializes in patients with blurred vision caused by optic disorders, double vision caused by strokes and brain tumors, defects in the visual fields, and involuntary spasms of the face and eyelids.
A variety of eye disorders are caused by or associated with neurologic diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, strokes and brain tumors. Because this specialty includes the fields of ophthalmology, neurology, neurosurgery and neuroradiology, most neuro-ophthalmologists have received training in all of these areas.
Patients referred to our division receive a complete evaluation, including:
- Testing of visual acuity
- Color vision testing
- Evaluation of the eye movements and ocular alignment
- Visual field testing using kinetic perimetry, static perimetry, or both
- Evaluation of visual dysfunction after brain injury
Selected patients may also undergo a variety of other diagnostic tests, including echography, CT scanning, and MR imaging. Upon completion of the evaluation, recommendations for further testing, therapy or both are given to the patient and referring physician, and a complete typed report is sent to the referring physician.
