Typically we use the eye and optic nerve as a model to determine the effectiveness of treatment strategies with brain disease.Our center has had collaborations with the National Eye Institute to longitudinally follow the effects of steroid use in patients with optic neuritis and longitudinal follow-up of patients with Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy.
