Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article reviews the diagnostic testing used in the evaluation of several common neuro-ophthalmologic entities including optic nerve disease, pseudotumor cerebri, anisocoria, ptosis, and ocular motor palsies. Emphasis is placed on these bedside tests that help to establish the diagnosis of these common clinical problems. The utility of the cocaine and Tensilon (edrophonium chloride) tests as well as the role of neuroimaging in these conditions are reviewed.
