Neuro-Ophthalmology

The Neuro-Ophthalmology Division at Stanford Medical Center is a vital component of the Stanford Pituitary Center. Because of the sensitive location of pituitary tumors, vision loss may occur and this may happen without the patient even being aware of the problem. Repeat neuro-ophthalmic evaluations are therefore crucial in following patients with pituitary tumors.
