Neuro eye disorders are conditions that arise from disruptions in the nervous system, impacting the proper functioning of the eyes.
Common Neuro Eye Disorders
- Optic Neuropathies: These occur when changes in blood flow lead to damage in the optic nerve, resulting in pain and vision problems, often affecting one eye.
- Optic Neuritis: Inflammation in the optic nerve, frequently associated with multiple sclerosis, is a key characteristic of optic neuritis.
- Giant Cell Arteritis: This condition involves inflammation in the arteries, including the temples and scalp, which can affect vision and lead to various symptoms.
- Chiasm Disorders: Tumors, trauma or bleeding in the brain can disrupt the optic nerve at the chiasm, causing vision problems.
