If you have a skull base brain tumor, it can affect your field of vision or the nerves that control the movement of your eyes. It is important for your doctor to measure your eye function and vision before and after treatment.
Your doctor may send you for an evaluation with a neuro-ophthalmologist. This is an eye doctor who specializes in disorders of the eye that are caused by disorders of the brain, brainstem or cranial nerves.
Your doctor will use results from your neuro-ophthalmology evaluation as part of your overall treatment assessment.
