When there is a problem in the visual pathways, sudden or progressive vision loss may occur. The main symptom in eye-related diseases is double vision, and the problem may be related to eye muscles, nerves, or control centers in the brain. Patients with complaints such as transient loss of vision or double vision, vision, low eyelid size, and differences in the size of pupils are also of interest to neuro-ophthalmology. The history of the patient is very important for the correct diagnosis of head pain. Success in this treatment is possible with compatible physician patient relationship and continuous follow-up.
