Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Often eye and visual problems resulting from Concussions and other Traumatic Brain Injury are overlooked during initial medical assessment and treatment of the injury. When these undetected vision problems are neglected and go untreated, this delays or even prevent successful recovery of faculties, abilities and life skills. We provide expert evaluation of the visual consequences of traumatic brain injury and the best treatments.
Vision Rehabilitation Tests and Therapy Treatments
We are experts in the testing, evaluation, and treatment of the eyes, visual symptoms, and overall vision recovery or improvement for all types of head trauma and traumatic brain injury (TBI). The specialty vision care that we offer is called by many names: neuro-optometry, neuro-optometric rehabilitation, optometric vision therapy or vision rehabilitation. In case of cosmetic abnormalities, unlike eye muscle surgery, vision therapy improves the patient's overall function rather than just his or her cosmetic appearance.
Our vision therapy programs can eliminate or lessen double vision or unstable vision, improve balance, gait, cognitive skills, eye contact, visual memory, and much more.
Treatment of Visual Symptoms w/ Prism and/or Therapy
Corrective or therapeutic lenses (such as, prism or ambient lenses) and/or Vision Therapy can help the patient who has lost function due to these types of brain injury. Special lenses might be used therapeutically during the therapy program and/or prescribed for short-term or long-term daily wear vision correction.
