Although a few issues seen by neuro-ophthalmologists are not troubling, different conditions can exacerbate and cause perpetual visual loss, or become life threatening. Here and there the issue is kept to the optic nerve or the nervous system and different times it is identified with an general ailment.

Neuro-ophthalmology symptoms and conditions

Obscured vision in one eye might be the consequence of a focal point issue (glasses), cataract or different opacities obstructing light's passage, a retinal issue, optic nerve sickness or a lazy eye (amblyopia). Double vision might be isolated into two general classes: monocular or binocular. Monocular twofold vision influences each eye in turn. On the off chance that the unaffected eye is closed, the double vision endures. Monocular twofold vision results from eye infection, typically a focal point issue or cataract changes. Binocular double vision is possibly present when the two eyes are open and disappears when either eye is closed. Binocular twofold vision results from misalignment of the eyes. At the point when the eyes are pointed in various ways, the mind sees two separate pictures (one from each eye).
