About 60% of the brain is occupied by eye related pathways. The eye – brain relationship is compared to that of an electrical circuit. Eye is analogous to bulb or fan, [the former for light perception and the latter for eye movement]. Optic nerve, visual pathways etc., are analogous to Wires and brain is analogous to a switch. Lesions in or around these passages will reflect in the vision or the eye movements. Certain tumours in the brain are first detected when the patient comes for treatment of headache. A complete eye check up along with Fundus examination and Autoperimetry will enable to clinch the diagnosis.

A comprehensive report at various period intervals, easily comprehensible by the neurosurgeon or the neuro physician is handed over to the patient.
