What We Do

​Neuro-Ophthalmology deals with brain disorders that affect vision. It's an important field that covers a wide variety of conditions – after all, five of the 12 nerves in your cranium have to do with your eyesight.  Our staff treats patients for problems that affect the optic nerve and pathways that carry vision signals to the brain. There are also nerve diseases that can compromise vision by affecting the tissues that surround and support the eye.

 Research at the Krembil Neuroscience Centre

​​Since almost half of the brain is dedicated to how we see, many brain abnormalities cause vision problems. These brain abnormalities – if left undetected or untreated – can often cause severe disability or become life threatening.
