Ocular Motility and Neuroophthalmology Services

The neuro-ophthalmology service undertakes diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting neurological control of the visual system, including vision, control of eye movement and pupillary reflexes.

We diagnose and treat:

  • unexplained loss of vision and visual field loss
  • double vision due to nerve damage (such as following a stroke or head injury) or muscle problems (such as myasthenia gravis)
  • loss of vision due to optic nerve (nerve of sight) disorders such as optic neuritis and inherited optic neuropathies
  • visual loss and eye movement disorders following head injuries
  • involuntary movements of the eyelids and upper face

We also see patients who require botulinum toxin injections for eye conditions including involuntary movements of the eyelids (such as blepharospasm and hemifacial spasm), eye movement disorders and eye watering due to Bell’s Palsy.
