A large part of the human brain is reserved for processing visual information, other brain structures are involved in planning and executing eye movements. Therefore, a majority of human brain diseases show signs and symptoms that can be read from the eyes. Multiple sclerosis or brain tumors, for example, very often manifest themselves first with eye complaints.
The field of neuroophthalmology deals with diseases of the visual system that do not originate in the eyes themselves. These include diseases of the optic nerve, the visual pathway and all visual processing disorders. Pupillary disorders and all eye movement disorders are also included.
