Welcome to the

Neuro-Ophthalmology Program

We provide high-quality care to people with disorders affecting vision and the nervous system.

Neuro-ophthalmologists at NYU Langone are vastly experienced in diagnosing and treating all neuro-ophthalmologic conditions, including conditions affecting the vision nerves, brain vision pathways, and eye movements. 

We commonly care for vision disorders including optic neuritis, ischemic optic neuropathy, optic nerve problems related to tumors, hereditary optic nerve disorders, pseudotumor cerebri, double vision, and nystagmus. If you are experiencing one of these conditions, you may have symptoms such as vision loss or double vision.
