Neuro-ophthalmology services at the OSF HealthCare Illinois Neurological Institute provide expert evaluation, diagnosis and treatment to patients who have vision problems with a neurologic basis. Patients requesting to be seen in the neuro-ophthalmology center should first work with their primary provider, specialist, ophthalmologist or optometrist for a referral.

During your first visit, our team will perform a detailed eye examination and conduct a variety of tests to help us pinpoint the exact nature of your problem. Making an accurate diagnosis is critical in identifying any risk of permanent visual loss or life-threatening disorders, or ruling out more serious conditions. Once we have arrived at a diagnosis, we discuss your individualized treatment plan with you.

With extensive training in both neurology and ophthalmology, our physicians and team members have specialized expertise in diagnosing and treating the many disorders affecting both neurologic pathways and the visual system, from more common conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and pituitary tumors to rare neuro-ophthalmic conditions.
