Bio

Dr. Baron has been practicing Neuro-Ophthalmology and caring for patients with neuro-ophthalmic conditions on the South Shore of Nassau and Suffolk Counties 25 years.

Neuro-ophthalmology involves caring for visual problems, such as double vision and vision loss, related to the central or peripheral nervous system and not to the eye structures themselves. Given that half of the human brain is involved in visual function, Neuro-ophthalmologists are trained to detect problems that overlap an extensive range of diseases that can be related to the eye, brain and or the extra ocular muscles.
