About

At Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for patients of all ages with neuro-ophthalmic vision disorders. As a leading centre for both adult and paediatric neuro-ophthalmology in Dubai, our specialists combine the expertise of neurology with ophthalmology to address complex vision problems stemming from the nervous system.

Neuro-ophthalmology is a speciality that combines the fields of neurology and ophthalmology to diagnose and treat vision issues related to the nervous system. Our expert neuro-ophthalmologists specialise in diagnosing and treating vision disorders that arise from neurological conditions such as brain injuries, stroke, or infections, visual field defects, involuntary facial spasms, and eyelid abnormalities. Even if you experience seemingly minor symptoms, it’s essential to seek professional assessment to prevent severe complications such as vision loss.

Treatment

Most neuro-ophthalmologic disorders require the interaction of the neuro-ophthalmologist with other physicians, particularly general neurologists, neurosurgeons and radiologists.

We provide treatment for the following conditions:

  • Blepharospasm and other involuntary facial movements
  • Double vision
  • Eyelid abnormalities
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Nystagmus
  • Optic nerve disorders, such as optic neuritis, ischemic optic neuropathy, compressive optic neuropathies and Leber optic neuropathy
  • Orbital tumours
  • Papilledema
  • Pupillary abnormalities (e.g., anisocoria)
  • Strabismus
  • Thyroid eye disease
  • Unexplained vision loss
  • Visual field defects related to stroke, brain tumours or multiple sclerosis

Neuro-ophthalmologic disorders require a collaborative approach for effective treatment. Our clinic in Dubai utilises state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge techniques to restore and improve your visual health. We work closely with a team of experts, including general neurologists, neurosurgeons, and radiologists, to ensure a cohesive treatment plan.
