"I chose neuro-ophthalmology because I enjoy the unique challenges the specialty offers. The brain is, in fact, an extension of the eye and neuro-ophthalmology is the study of the eye as it relates to the brain. I enjoy piecing together the puzzle and the disease is often not visible or very apparent so diagnosis requires investigative or detective work." — Sophia Chung
