What are the symptoms? Internuclear Ophthalmoplegia as an isolated or predominant ophtahlmoplegia of brainstem infarction.
Multiple sclerosis is a disorder where your immune system is compromised and the protective coverings of nerve cells are being attacked. Simple eye exercises can help in the treatment of a condition called strabismus, also known as crossed eyes.
Discussion Internuclear ophthalmoplegia INO is a deficit in the control of conjugate eye movements, which results from damage to the medial longitudinal fasciculus MLF.
About another third of cases result from multiple sclerosis MS. Additionally, the adduction deficit and contralateral abducting nystagmus is evident. Tumors like medulloblastoma and Pontine gliomas are important causes besides trauma, vasculitis, infarction, and hemorrhage.
Although there is impaired adduction in the ipsilateral eye, some patients may have normal convergence. When the adducting eye catches up with your other eye, your vision becomes normal. Paralytic strabismus Ophthalmoparesis Chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia Kearns—Sayre syndrome.
