Neuro-ophthalmology

This area Wake Forest Baptist Health's Eye Center combines ophthalmology and neurology. 

The neuro-ophthalmologists at Wake Forest Baptist's Eye Center care for patients with complex visual problems associated with neurologic disorders such as: brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, strokes and other disorders of the nervous system.

Patients with unexplained vision loss, double vision or headaches often visit our neuro-ophthalmologists for diagnosis. 

Conditions we treat include:

  • Anisocoria
  • Cranial neuropathies affecting eye movement
  • Double vision (diplopia)
  • Headaches involving vision (e.g., migraines)
  • Optic neuritis
  • Optic neuropathy
  • Transient vision loss 

The neuro-ophthalmologists at WFBH Eye Center diagnose patients and then consult with their referring physicians, who can provide specialty eye care treatment. Or, our neuro-ophthalmologists may personally treat eye conditions in patients who also are being treated in Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology or other departments at Wake Forest Baptist.
