The eye is a part of the nervous system, so it’s logical that there are eye doctors who are specialists in both neuroscience and ophthalmology.
Our doctors are trained to monitor and treat common neuro-ophthalmology medical conditions. These conditions can range from strokes involving eyesight, to headaches, and post concussion syndrome. Medical conditions such as blepharospasm (eyelid muscles that cause blinking and spasm uncontrollably) and certain types of migraines can be treated with Botox® or Xeomin®. Back in 2010, the FDA approved Botox®, famous for smoothing out facial wrinkles, to treat chronic migraine headaches in adults.
You do have options to treat your medical condition and we invite you to explore those by first undergoing a complete neuro-ophthalmic exam at TC Eye.
