What can a neuro opthamaologist treat?

Are they qualified to treat all neurological illnesses/ disorders as well as eye disorders?

I also see that either a neurologist oopthamologist can become a neuro opthamologist... what is the different between the practice of both since one has primary training in neurology and the other in opthamology?

That depends. A neurologist can do a fellowship in neuro-ophthalmology, so that person may be more comfortable with doing both general neurology and neuro-ophtho. An ophthalmologist can do a fellowship to do neuro-ophthalmology as well, but they typically don't manage other neurological problems. They may do comp and neuro-ophtho.

Impressive creativity in spelling ophthalmology:
- Opthamaologist
- Oopthamologist
- Opthamologist
