Brain injuries often affect visual processing
Traumatic brain injury and vision problems are often related
There are numerous types of brain injuries that can result in visual disturbances. Some of these include, stroke, motor vehicle accidents, concussion and those suffering from post concussion syndrome, whiplash and status-post neurosurgery for tumor resection. About 80 percent of injuries involving the brain result in vision problems, and they are often overlooked by the traumatic brain injury (TBI) rehabilitation team. Neurological events such as strokes can also lead to vision impairment.
Those who have suffered a brain-related injury or event should watch for the symptoms listed on this page. Anyone experiencing any of the symptoms should request a vision rehabilitation evaluation to determine if vision therapy for traumatic brain injury is a proper treatment option.
