What We Do

Neuro-ophthalmology concerns disorders of brain, nerves and muscles that affect vision. It covers a wide variety of conditions that fall at the border of neurology and ophthalmology. Five of the 12 cranial nerves in the head serve vision. The clinic assess visual problems affecting the pathways carrying visual signals to the brain and those which move the eyes.

 Research at the Krembil Neuroscience Centre

​​Since almost half the brain is dedicated to seeing, many brain abnormalities can cause vision problems. Such brain abnormalities can affect vision, health, and occasionally even life.
