Neuro-ophthalmic diagnosis can be a mysterious and bewildering process. Diagnosis and treatment of some of the most common neuro-ophthalmic problems still require thorough understanding of basic ophthalmology and neurology, yet mastery of these disciplines individually does not automatically bestow expertise in the combined subspecialty. Likewise, consulting with the encyclopedias of neuro-ophthalmology does not truly solve the dilemma of what to do with the patient who presents to the generalist's office with a neuro-ophthalmic disorder.
