Pupil Sparing Third Cranial Nerve Palsy
What's the difference between strabismus & cranial nerve palsies that effect the eyes? Can cranial nerve palsies cause strabismus?
Different patterns: Strabismus is the generic term for eye misalignment of any cause. If from childhood, the eyes are separated about the same in all positions. If from cranial palsy, the degree of separation goes from normal away from the action of the muscles, to a very wide difference in the direction of the action of that muscle. An ophthalmologist can usually readily make this distinction. ...Read more
...is a corruption of French "paralise" from Latinized Greek "paralysis." In the old days it meant any kind of persistent weakness.

The authors report on successful reconstruction in cases where the nerve was intact, but trapped by scar tissue. Your case may or may not be similar, so it is best to undergo a complete evaluation. ...Read more

Can facial nerve palsy affecting the left lips, left eye blinking, and vocal cord all arising from trauma of gunshot at the neck, ear , be corrected?
No recourse: A crushed optic nerve (how did this happen to you?) causes permanent changes which will alter the vision sometimes severely. There is currently no treatment known for this and a transplant is not possible. A discussion with a neuro-ophthalmologist would be helpful in this situation. ...Read more
History and exam: Typically the diagnosis of a third nerve palsy is made by a history of double vision and then a clinical exam that demonstrates and abnormality of the opening of the eyelid (ptosis), the pupillary size (bigger) and/or the eye movement. Imaging may be useful for uncovering the cause, but the diagnosis is made clinically. ...Read more
