Ophthalmoplegia is a visual disorder where the optical muscles weaken and facilitate double vision or blurred vision. It may be a genetic disorder but it can also be brought about by thyroid problems, migraine, brain injury or stroke. The two kinds of ophthalmoplegia are internuclear and external which is more chronic than the former. In both, the cases the brain fails to receive the message sent by motor nerves in the eye.
HOW IS OPHTHALMOPLEGIA DIAGNOSED?
Special glasses or a patch is usually helpful in balancing the double vision.
