Training the Eye-Brain Connection

  • Have you recently been diagnosed with a concussion or other brain injury?
  • Are you seeing double or having trouble reading?

The effects of a brain injury or neurological disorder on vision are often overlooked. These can cause a disruption between the eyes and the brain resulting in vision problems. These problems can range from double vision and blurriness to mobility and balance issues.

We at River Valley Eye Clinic help retrain the brain and eyes to work together so you can live your best life.

4 Common Visual Symptoms of Brain Injury

  • Balance issues

    The vestibular system, which regulates your balance, is heavily connected to your visual system. Problems with one can often cause difficulties with the other.

  • Issues with visual tracking

    The eyes’ inability to move together in a continuous motion, to follow moving objects and to read fluently.

  • Double or blurry vision

    This may have to do with a number of issues, including the eye’s inability to converge together on a target image or point together in the same direction.

  • Headaches

    Issues with eye coordination and visual processing can cause the eyes and brain to become overworked, resulting in headaches.

What is Neuro Optometric Rehabilitation Therapy?

Photograph

Neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy is a customized treatment regimen for those with visual deficits resulting from traumatic brain injuries (TBI), physical disabilities or other neurological issues, such as a stroke or Parkinson's Disease. The therapy applies the latest methods and treatments of neuro-plasticity and vision function to help patients develop or regain the essential visual skills necessary for learning and optimal daily function. 

An undiagnosed vision condition, or one resulting from a traumatic brain injury or neurological disease, can result in the following problems:

  • Double-vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye-teaming and eye-tracking problems 
  • Visual field loss
  • Extreme sensitivity to light (photophobia)
  • Eye focusing problems

As part of an interdisciplinary approach, neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy targets the underlying cause of the symptoms listed above.

If you or a loved one is suffering from neurological disease or brain trauma visit River Valley Eye Clinic for a comprehensive eye exam and neuro-optometric solutions.

Neuro-Optometry FAQs

Can a concussion affect my vision?

90% of patients with traumatic brain injuries (such as concussions) suffer visual symptoms. While not always noticeable, they can impact everyday tasks and activities. If you begin noticing changes in your vision following a concussion or other head trauma, contact River Valley Eye Clinic immediately.

Who can neuro-optometry help?

Neuro-optometry can help people dealing with visual issues linked to:

  • Autism
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Concussion
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Cerebral palsy (CP)
  • Cerebral vascular accidents (CVA)
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
What are common types of vision problems after TBI?
  • Blurred vision, especially with seeing up close. Double vision.
  • Problems with eye teaming. 
  • Decreased peripheral vision.
  • Visual problems that affect balance and cause motion sensitivity
  • Eye pain
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Double vision
Will I notice vision issues right after my concussion?

Not necessarily. Although symptoms can present themselves immediately following a brain injury, often they are only noticed weeks or months after the initial injury. This is especially true if the injury is severe, since you may have other serious and potentially life-threatening issues that require more urgent medical attention. In any case, the earlier you get neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy, the better.
