Our fellowship-trained neuro-ophthalmology physicians provide special expertise in the consultation, diagnosis and surgery of patients with disorders of the eyelid, pupil, optic nerve, cranial nerve, and orbit resulting from optic neuritis, ischemic optic neuropathy, brain tumors and strokes, cranial nerve palsies, myasthenia gravis, blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm, pseudotumor cerebri, and migraines.
Additionally, service is available for Botulinum (BOTOX- TM) injections for blepharospasm and hemifacial spasm, two different conditions that cause uncontrolled blinking of the eyelids and eyelid closure. This often results in an inability to see because the eyelids cannot be opened. BOTOX-TM injections result in dramatic improvement in most patients ability to open their eyelids. Our neuro-ophthalmologists are recognized as experts in the field of BOTOX-TM injections for these conditions. This same medication can also be successfully used to minimize facial lines and wrinkles.
