Patients of all ages who have experienced neurological insults require neuro-optometric rehabilitation. Visual problems caused by traumatic brain injury, cerebrovascular accident, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, etc., may interfere with visual performance, causing the person to be identified as learning disabled or as having attention deficit disorder.
These visual dysfunctions can manifest themselves as psychological sequelae such as anxiety and panic disorders as well as spatial dysfunctions affecting balance and posture.
Neuro-optometric rehabilitation can be done in conjunction with other medical therapies to improve visual function for multiple conditions including:
- Concussion/Traumatic Brain Injury
- Degenerative neurological diseases including multiple sclerosis
- Nerve Palsy
In some cases, vision problems caused by a traumatic brain injury or neurological disorder may manifest as psychological problems. These may be identified as:
- Learning disabilities
- Attention disorders
- Anxiety and panic disorders
Individuals who have experienced brain injury are often highly symptomatic and can experience difficulties with activities of daily living. If you suffer from neurological issues and have been diagnosed with problems similar to these, you may benefit from concussion and neuro-optometric therapy.
The goal of neuro-optometric rehabilitation is to help improve your quality of life by correcting neurological vision problems that are secondary to your injury or condition.
