Abstract

Visual functions are frequently impaired in neurological diseases. However, insufficient information regarding
the visual function dimensions is available reflecting the sparse investigations in both research and clinical works.
Visual acuity, visual field and oculomotor function are the only few functions evaluated in neurological diseases
and in almost all cases they are worst reflections of the visual word of the patient. We present a series of studies of
visual functions in neurological diseases that are in line with a more translational research investigating the basic
functions and relating them to the neurological impairment. Future perspectives are discussed to support upcoming
researches and therapeutics more efficient and scientifically based.
