Neurological Conditions and Vision Problems

What Types of Neurological Conditions Impact Vision?

Neurological vision disorders are caused by medical conditions that affect the nervous system. These conditions include stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, Lyme disease, or myasthenia gravis. The conditions can cause weakness in the small muscles that control the movements of the eyes and the binocular coordination of the eyes. These disorders may even impact the optic nerve itself, resulting in loss of central or peripheral vision.

What are the Symptoms of Vision Issues Caused by Neurological Conditions?

Vision symptoms may include:

  • Double vision
  • Blurred vision or fluctuations in vision
  • Loss of place while reading
  • Reading difficulties
  • Visual field loss
  • Poor spatial awareness
  • Drooping eyelid

If you or a loved one experience any of the above symptoms, a Neuro-Vision Evaluation conducted by a Neuro Optometrist is the only means of getting a clear and accurate diagnosis. If you’re interested in better understanding the seriousness and severity of the symptoms you or a loved one are experiencing, we encourage you to take our Vision Symptom Quiz.
