Eye movement disorders play an important role in clinical neurology, since they are part of many neurological diseases. Furthermore, from a scientific point of view, the assessment of the patterns of eye movement disturbances after focal brain lesions is an excellent way to study the cortical and subcortical networks involved in eye movement control. The present chapter deals with the clinical aspects of eye movements disturbances in patients with neurological disorders. The clinical examination of eye movements is explained and put in relation to the underlying neuroanatomical structures. Moreover, the eye movement disturbances typically observed in common neurological diseases (such as ischemic stroke, multiple sclerosis, and neurodegenerative diseases) are discussed.
