WHEN VISION PROBLEMS OCCUR AS A RESULT OF BRAIN INJURIES, THERE ARE SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT PROGRAMS AVAILABLE.
Brain injuries come in many forms, such as Concussion, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), or Acquired Brain Injury. These types of injuries result from an insult to the brain, such as a blow to the head or neurological dysfunction, and can produce cognitive, sensory or physical impairments.
There are numerous visual problems that can develop from a brain injury, including:
- blurred vision
- chronic headaches that can become worse with near work
- sensitivity to light
- double vision
- aching eyes, tired eyes
- inability to focus
- reduction of visual field
- difficulties with eye movements (such as alignment, depth perception, shifting gaze or focusing)
- difficulty with reading and computer work
Fortunately, These Problems Can Be Successfully Treated With Vision Treatment Services Such As Optometric Vision Therapy, Vision Rehabilitation, Corrective Lenses And Phototherapy Programs.
Family Vision Development Center has advanced Visual Rehabilitation services for treating post-concussive vision syndrome and traumatic injury. We believe the most effective treatment programs for visual rehabilitation involve input from other health professionals such as your neuro-developmental optometrist, medical doctor, psychologist or neurologist to create the most comprehensive plan.
We also have rehabilitation programs that cater to those with special needs. Children and adults with Downs Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome and certain genetic conditions tend to have a higher rate of vision problems than the general population, and may have trouble focusing, tracking objects or processing visual information.
