Neuro-Ophthalmology is a subspecialty within ophthalmology that combines the complexities of nervous system disease with the intricacies of the ocular manifestations of those diseases. Neuro-ophthalmologists work closely with neurologists, neurosurgeons, rheumatologists, and other ophthalmologists in different subspecialties, such as retina and glaucoma, to get to the source of their patients’ problems. Neuro-ophthalmology is typically a 1-year fellowship undertaken after residency training is completed, where physicians will learn the complex ways different diseases can manifest in the eye.
