At Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, part of the University of Miami Health System, our team is highly experienced and trained in treating conditions that affect both your brain (“neuro”) and vision.
Neuro-ophthalmology is an ophthalmic subspecialty that addresses the relationship between the eye and the brain, specifically disorders of the optic nerve (nerve that connects the eye to the brain), orbit (eye socket), and brain.
Our ophthalmologists provide comprehensive clinical care to a broad spectrum of patients with vision problems due to inherited retinal diseases, optic nerve diseases, central nervous system disorders, ocular motility dysfunction (abnormal eye alignment or problems controlling eye movements), and pupillary abnormalities.
