Neuro-ophthalmology Services

A number of neurological conditions affect the areas of the brain devoted to vision. Disturbances of these important areas may impact vision. The Division of Neuro-ophthalmology in the Department of Neurology at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) provides specialized diagnosis, treatment and management services for neurological disorders involving the visual pathways and eye movement.

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians have specialized expertise in neurology, ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology and neuroimaging. Their extensive training enables them to consider the whole patient during their examinations, evaluating neurologic, ophthalmic and medical issues to make an accurate diagnosis.
