Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) is a Neurological disease, which is a disorder of the body nervous system. While NF2 does most of its damage resulting from tumor growth, like many Neurological conditions, the damage to the nerve system can cause vision issues.
For individuals with NF2, eye issues can cause poor vision or blindness in early childhood as a result of Juvenile Cataracts before any tumor has a chance to do any damage. Typically other eye issues develop much later. ( learn more about eye issues)
