    Question:

    Does an ophthalmologist perform the same tests for glaucoma and myasthenia gravis?


    Answer:

    There is no overlap in testing for glaucoma and myasthenia gravis. Glaucoma is a disease related to intraocular pressure and the ensuing damage to the optic nerve in the back of the eye. Myasthenia gravis is a disease that can affect the muscles controlling the eyes and eyelid movement. These are different diseases that require different testing.
