Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Biousse "The Neuro-Ophthalmology Service at Emory Eye Center is very specialized and only evaluates patients with neuro-ophthalmic disorders, usually at the request of an ophthalmologist, a neurologist or a neurosurgeon. Dr Biousse specializes in optic nerve disorders and vascular diseases involving the brain and the eyes. Because the neuro-ophthalmologic evaluation is complex and involves numerous tests, patients often stay in our office for 2 or 3 hours. We always send back a very detailed report to the referring providers and we ask that patients bring copies of all their previous medical records and copies of any brain imaging studies (such as CT and MRI scans) so that we can review them at the time of consultation.

There are very few neuro-ophthalmologists in Atlanta and in the state of Georgia. The Emory Neuro-Ophthalmology Service is very busy and covers all Emory affiliated hospitals and emergency departments in Atlanta."
