The Rutgers Health Neuro-Ophthalmology program provides diagnosis and treatment for visual disturbances resulting from brain disorders of the visual and ocular motor systems. This may include such conditions as:
- Blurred vision (due to optic nerve disorders)
- Defects in visual field (how well objects seen via side vision while eyes focus on a central point)
- Double vision (possibly caused by stroke, brain tumor, or other causes)
- Spasms or weakness in eyelids
- Trouble moving eyes
- Unequal pupils
- Vision changes following neurological surgery or from migraines
The Rutgers Health Neuro-Ophthalmology program diagnoses and treats visual disturbances using
- Visual fields measurements that use the Goldmann perimetry test
- Botulinum toxin (Botox) treatment for cranial dystonia (a neurological disorder affecting muscles in the head, face, and neck.)
- Pupillary pharmacologic testing (testing whether pupils constrict properly)
Physicians in the Rutgers Health Neuro-Ophthalmology program are on the faculty of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in research and in teaching about all aspects of neuro-ophthalmology and neurology, and each brings leading-edge knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.
