What are Neurological Disorders?
Neurological disorders are diseases of the brain, spine, and the nerves that connect them. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disorder that is often detected through problems with vision. Almost all MS patients will experience a visual disturbance in their lifetimes. MS prevents the eyes from working together, resulting in double vision and difficulty reading or watching television. One of the most common vision issues for people with multiple sclerosis is optic neuritis, which can cause vision loss in one eye.
Stroke, aneurysms, or brain tumors can also cause visual changes. Brain infections that affect the right part of the brain can also impact your vision.
