Abstract

Central nervous system radiation may expose different parts of ophthalmic system to radiation, leading to transient or permanent injury. This chapter discusses the potential consequence of radiation to ocular, orbital, and periorbital structures, as well as the anterior and posterior optic pathways and cranial nerves. In addition, therapeutic interventions for acute and chronic side effects are provided.
