Patients with symptoms of visual loss unexplained by findings inside the eye are appropriately referred to neuro-ophthalmology. Symptoms our doctors treat include double vision, unexplained visual loss, headache, and protrusion of the eye. Associated diseases that cause these symptoms may include cranial nerve palsies, visual field loss, nystagmus, optic neuritis and other optic neuropathies, thyroid-associated eye disease, migraine, autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS), and idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
