CRANIAL NERVE ASSESSMENT


Last week, CRANIAL NERVE ASSESSMENT in the Clinical Setting was begun. This week two more Cranial Nerves will be discussed. Cranial Nerve 2 -is the OPTIC NERVE which is responsible for vision. Damage to the Optic nerve may result in blindness.

Diplopia is discussed in this scenario, but is not entirely caused by damage to this nerve. Injury to the TROCHLEAR- Cranial Nerve 4, may result in diplopia ( double vision).
