About Me

I am a neuro-ophthalmologist, trained in neurology and ophthalmology residencies, as well as two years in a neuro-ophthalmology fellowship.

Neuro-ophthalmology is a specialty in the borderland between neurology and ophthalmology. Ophthalmologists may have more expertise in vision exams than diseases, while neurologists may have more expertise in diseases than vision examination. So, there is a need for physicians who have expertise in both.

Being an ophthalmologist, I know the ophthalmic diseases which can masquerade as neurologic vision loss, and vice versa. Common conditions that I evaluate include double vision, optic nerve disease, multiple sclerosis-related vision problems and stroke-induced vision loss.

I immensely enjoy the opportunity that being at Ohio State gives me to teach medical students, neurologists and ophthalmologists in training. I also enjoy the stimulating, productive interactions that come from having subspecialty ophthalmologists right here.

I’m very focused on educating my patients as well. The more patients know and understand about their illness, the less frightening it will be for them.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 12/20/2018, Dr. Hirsh has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
