Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation

Vision is more than 20/20 eyesight. Visual processing involves the eye and the brain. Visual processing problems are very common following brain injury. The flow of information between the eye and brain is often jumbled after a brain injury.

A basic eye examination is often normal because visual processing problems are not eyesight problems. Visual processing problems are not obvious so referral for a vision evaluation is rarely made unless you report eyesight changes or you have an eye injury.

Hidden visual processing problems can cause your rehabilitation to take longer or be less successful if they are not recognized or treated.

Symptoms of Post Trauma Vision Syndrome include:

Blurred vision
• Double vision
• Light sensitivity
• Reading problems
• Movement of print on the page
• Poor reading comprehension
• Limited attention or concentration
• Poor spatial judgment
• Impaired depth perception
• Loss of peripheral vision
• Poor visual memory
• Headaches with visual tasks

Hidden visual problems can also affect balance, coordination and cognitive function. You may have poor eye-hand coordination or problems judging stairs. Driving may become difficult and things moving may make you feel ill. You may not notice things as quickly and your reaction time may be slowed. Visual fatigue is common.
