Treatment of Ischaemic Optic Neuropathy at the Clínic

Reading time: 1 min

Over 400 patients with ischaemic optic neuropathy have been seen at the Ophthalmology Clínic Institute in the last 10 years.

Patients with Horton’s arteritis are treated by multidisciplinary teams in the Autoimmune Diseases and Neuro-Ophthalmology Service; pioneers in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of such patients.

The neuro-ophtalmology healthcare field is a reference for this disease, as well as for other optic nerve diseases, such as optic neuritis, idiopathic intracranial hypertension, hereditary optic neuropathies and toxic neuropathies.

The Neuro-Ophthalmology section in the Hospital is part of the European Network of eye diseases, ERN-EYE. It participates in the organisation of teaching courses and in the Neuro-Ophthalmology Working Group of the Catalan Ophthalmology Association. It has participated in about 50 clinical trials, 20 financed with public funds.

Optic coherence tomography studies are currently being done to determine prognostic factors for the evolution of the disease.
