    • Disorders of the Visual Pathways arising for example, from stroke or stroke-like disease, tumour compression (e.g. pituitary tumours), inflammation and degenerative diseases. 
    • Unexplained Visual Loss that cannot be readily explained by a routine ophthalmic examination and imaging studies. 


  • Eye Movement Disorders
    • Eye movement disorders causing diplopia (double vision) or an abnormal head posture as a result of nerve palsies, neuromuscular junction disorders and myopathies. 
    • Nystagmus (Jerky eye movements) causing oscillopsia.
