Neuro-ophthalmology is a discipline comprising a wide variety of disorders that overlap the fields of neurology, ophthalmology and general medicine. Diagnosis in this field requires a thorough knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the visual pathways and ocular motor system, as well as the ability to carry out a thorough neuro-ophthalmological examination. The combination of the history and any abnormalities identified by the examination should enable a detailed differential diagnosis to be reached, leading to appropriate investigations if required, and a final diagnosis.
