Neuroophthalmologists are “physicians who make neurological diagnoses based on the eye examination”. This 50 plus year old statement still describes best what we do. The eye can indeed be a window to the brain.


Dr. Remler straddles the two specialties of Neurology and Ophthalmology. He sees patients both at the Eye Institute and in the Neuroscience Clinic at Froedtert Specialty Clinics. He treats visual problems arising in the context of nervous system disorders. He also does evaluations and management of complex visual and eye movement disorders.
