Abnormalities of the central nervous system and brain can impair vision. Partial or temporary blindness and double vision are examples of conditions that may stem from a neurological condition rather than an eye ailment. Neuro-Ophthalmologists specialize in these conditions.
Yale Medicine’s neuro-ophthalmologists diagnose and treat a wide range of neurological and other conditions that cause vision problems. They also treat other ailments that can affect vision, such as diabetes and thyroid abnormalities.
