Neuro-optometric Rehabilitation

Acquired brain injury is an insult to the brain. The following list contains some of the more common causes:

  • A blow to the head from a fall or car accident
  • Stroke and other brain bleeds
  • M.S./neurological dysfunction

Vision is our dominant sense and a primary source of sensory information that guides our motor functions. Acquired brain injury can disrupt this visual process causing visual symptoms such as:

  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Reading difficulties
  • Comprehensive difficulties
  • Attention-concentration difficulties
  • Memory difficulties
  • Double vision
  • Eye strain
  • Headaches
  • Loss of peripheral vision

During the rehabilitation process, a behavioral optometrist may use special lenses and filters (opaque, colored) along with vision therapy and 9 (phototherapy).

Do not wait to see if things will just get better on their own. The brain begins healing right away, so proper guidance of the healing process is vital to a fast and complete recovery.
