Since I've been having more visual symptoms (blurriness in the afternoon and evenings on hot days) my neuro is sending me to a neuro-ophthalmologist. I went to an optomatrist in January for an exam after the first visual disturbance (double vision + blurriness). My neuro sent me to an ophthalmologist that has some interest and experience in neuro-ophthalmology but is a normal ophthalmologist. He did a very thorough exam and a lot of tests. We found some mild loss of color vision in one eye and he did a visual field test that had some mild weird things but was within the normal range.
I'm wondering what to expect. Will it be about the same as a normal ophthalmolagist visit but they just know more in terms of interpreting the situation? I'm wondering what to expect. Any insight?
I think the big difference between a neuro-opthamologist and an opthamologist is a neuro-opthamologist is educated more in problems with the eyes due to neurological reasons. They are more educated in neurological disease that effect the eye like MS.
