Ophthalmology

Neuro-Ophthalmology

The neuro-ophthalmology service takes care of patients with loss of vision, double vision, eye movement abnormalities, orbital syndromes, and ophthalmologic problems related but not limited to cerebrovascular diseases, tumor, head trauma, neurodegenerative diseases, infection, and inflammation.  In addition to comprehensive clinical assessment of visual acuity, pupil, anterior and posterior segment, eye movement, and eye alignment, we provide state-of- the-art clinical testing.

As the leaders in vision changes in the setting of neurological and ophthalmic diseases at Stanford, we carry out clinical and basic science research to promote better understanding of the mechanism and treatment of neuro-ophthalmic diseases in order to synergize the advancements between the bench and the bedside.  We attract sponsored clinical and basic science research and enhance public awareness and education of neuro-ophthalmologic diseases.
