Lyme borreliosis is an emerging tickborne spirochetal infection characterized by a broad variety of symptoms, ranging from neurologic disorders and different skin manifestations to cardiac symptoms. Many ocular and neuro-ophthalmic symptoms have recently been attributed to Lyme disease. Especially in endemic areas ophthalmologists need to be aware of Borrelia burgdorferi as a possible causal agent. The aim of this paper is to present a short review of the literature of ophthalmic disorders resulting from Borrelia burgdorferi infections.
