Since the beginning of medicine the clinical method is the cornerstone in the diagnosis of different diseases. With the passing of time the diagnostic process has benefited from the scientific-technical development. The specialty of Ophthalmology has been one of the main beneficiaries, especially in the field of images. It is reported the utility of some diagnostic means in some clinical cases. For example, the fundus camera, computerized perimetry and neuroimaging, specifically, axial computed tomography and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, which are very useful in the accurate diagnosis of patients with clinical neuro- ophthalmological symptoms attended at the Neuro-Ophthalmology Department of the Arnaldo Milian Castro Clinical-Surgical Hospital.

Key words: clinical neuro-ophthalmology, images.
