Neuro-Ophthalmology

The neuro-ophthalmologists at Dean McGee Eye Institute are medical doctors who are board certified ophthalmologists. Following their ophthalmology residency, all three doctors have completed either one or two years of additional training (fellowship) in neuro-ophthalmology at prestigious institutions. In addition, Dr. Siatkowski has a special interest in Pediatric Neuro-Ophthalmology.

Information

We are actively involved in medical student education, residency training and we often train qualified ophthalmologists to become neuro-ophthalmologists. We also participate in clinical research.

Neuro-ophthalmologists deal with vision problems related to neurological conditions or diseases. We dedicate our practices to the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders that accompany neurological disease and diseases of the optic nerve and eye muscles. We often see conditions such as:

  • optic nerve diseases (optic neuritis, ischemic optic neuropathy, optic nerve tumors, optic nerve swelling, etc.)
  • unexplained loss of vision
  • visual disturbances
  • double vision (diplopia) and eye movement abnormalities
  • pupil abnormalities
  • visual field loss/defects
  • headache, facial or eye pain
  • eyelid abnormalities (droopy eyelids, eyelid spasms)
  • thyroid eye disease
  • visual changes related to head injury
  • neurological diseases that may have visual disturbances as part of the disease (Parkinson disease, myasthenia, multiple sclerosis, stroke, brain tumors, neurodegenerative diseases, etc.)
