Default eye exam

Both times I went to the Neuro with my problem, as part of my check, they looked at my eyes with the scope and light. I didn't ask why. Is there any particular reason they would be doing this? Can signs of ALS be spotted this way? Thanks for listening.

It is just part of a regular nuero exam. I don't believe signs of ALS can be spotted through this, but other things can.
