ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the field of neuro-opathalmology. Unlike so many of ophthalmologists who get focused on little part of the eye like cornea, retina and so on, neuro-ophthalmology faculty deal routinely with the rest of the nervous system, as well as with endocrine, inflammatory, and infectious disorders. Not having a neuro-ophthalmologist would be a quite blow to the teaching and patient-care functions of most departments. Some neuro-opthalmologists are becoming dually trained to perform both oculoplastic and orbital surgery. Others are devoting major time to the laboratory, with funding from National Institutes of Health grants to help support clinician-scientists.
