What Are Neurological Eye Disorders and Strabismus?
Neurological eye disorders can be complex and occur from multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, strokes, migraines and other neurological conditions. These disorders can lead to vision changes, double vision, loss of peripheral vision and even blindness in severe cases.
Strabismus, or “crossed eyes,” occurs when the eyes do not align properly. This affects the ability to focus the eyes, read or engage in sports and other activities and can impact your confidence and emotional well-being. Early diagnosis and treatment are important because they impact outcomes, especially in children. Uncorrected strabismus can lead to permanent vision problems and even affect depth perception development.
Neurological Eye Disorders and Strabismus Symptoms
Neurological eye disorders and strabismus can have several symptoms. These can develop quickly and become severe. Symptoms can include:
- Difficulty with depth perception or focusing on objects
- Double vision
- Frequent squinting or eye shutting
- Loss of color vision
- Misalignment of eyes
- Sudden vision loss

Neurological Eye Disorders and Strabismus Treatments
Your journey to recovery begins with an extensive neurological eye exam. We carefully review your family and medical history to comprehensively understand your condition and identify potential genetic or environmental factors that could also contribute to your condition.
Neurological eye conditions and strabismus can be complex and may require both medical and intricate surgical treatment. We often operate on individuals who have previously undergone strabismus surgery to correct their misaligned eyes.
