Abstract

We present 2 cases that came to our institute for refractive surgery and were discovered to have serious systemic conditions requiring immediate intervention. On examination, prolactinoma of the pituitary gland was seen in one patient and multiple sclerosis was diagnosed in the other patient. Prompt treatment of the conditions led to improvement in the neuro-ophthalmic disorders. We recommend a thorough physical evaluation of patients having an ophthalmic examination.
