Neuro-ophthalmic conditions can be caused by optic nerve diseases, central nervous system disorders, and pupil abnormalities. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms contact the Mercy Eye Center toll-free at 1-866-WELL-EYES (1-866-935-5393) to schedule an appointment with one of our eye care professionals to get a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan:
  • loss of vision
  • double vision
  • impaired vision
  • eyelid or facial spasms
  • droopy eyelid(s)
  • unequal pupils
When you come to the Mercy Eye Center for a neuro-ophthalmic condition your ophthalmologist will perform a complete eye evaluation including a test for visual acuity, color vision, eye alignment and visual field testing. Depending on your eye conditions and symptoms your doctor may recommend further diagnostic testing to possibly include:
  • carotid doppler
  • cerebral angiography
  • CT scan
  • echography
  • electrophysiological tests
  • hematological labwork
  • MRI
  • optical coherence tomography (OCT)
  • orbital and optic nerve ultrasound
When coming in for an appointment with a Mercy Eye Center ophthalmologist regarding your possible neuro-ophthalmic condition bring any medical records you have including scans or x-rays and lab test results. If you do not have copies contact your current physician or eye specialist and request that a copy of your files be sent to the Mercy Eye Center. Bring a complete list of your current medical conditions, medical history (including family medical history), and list of current medications including dosage. Because you will likely need to have your eyes dilated during your eye evaluation plan on having someone drive you or make plans for transportation ahead of time.
