Post-Concussion Vision Rehab
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that alters the way your brain functions. The prevalence of concussions is increasing, especially in young athletes.
While studies show approximately 85% of concussions resolve within two weeks, 15% of individuals have persistent symptoms that last for weeks, months, even years. This condition is called Post-Concussion Syndrome.
Post-Concussion Syndrome Symptoms
- Eye strain
- Double vision
- Blurred vision
- Decreased visual attention
- Dizziness and Nausea
- Visual memory deficits
- Visual confusion
Post-Concussion Syndrome Vision Rehabilitation
Visual skill deficiencies that occur after a brain injury respond well to in-office vision therapy treatment that is carefully introduced to retrain the brain. As we decrease the symptoms above, quality of life improves dramatically. After treatment, patients can return to school, work, and the field/court more comfortably, safely, and successfully.
