What is Concussion & Neuro-Optometric Therapy?

Concussion and neuro-optometric rehabilitation is a treatment regimen developed to help patients who have experienced symptoms secondary to concussions, traumatic brain injuries, stroke, physical disabilities, or other neurological issues. Neuro-optometric therapy is a process for the rehabilitation of visual/perceptual/motor disorders.

Some of the issues treated with concussion and neuro-optometric rehabilitation include:

  • Double vision
  • Acquired strabismus
  • Binocular dysfunction
  • Convergence or accommodation paresis/paralysis
  • Oculomotor dysfunction
  • Visual-spatial dysfunction
  • Visual perceptual and cognitive deficits
  • Traumatic visual acuity loss
  • Dizziness and Balance Issues
  • Light Sensitivity
  • Headaches

Treatment regimens are designed specifically for each patient to address their particular issues. The length of treatment will vary from patient to patient, but it can take anywhere from a few months to a few years before the patient may start seeing results.

Concussion and neuro-optometric therapy does not guarantee 20/20 vision, and unfortunately, some patients may not experience any improvement in their symptoms.

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
  • Stroke
  • 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.

What Does Concussion & Neuro-Optometric Therapy Involve?

The evaluation process is similar to an evaluation for vision therapy, including assessments for visual efficiency, visual information processing, visual neglect, diplopia, contrast sensitivity, and light sensitivity. The exam components will vary based on the patient’s symptoms and type of neurological disorder.

Our office is equipped with the Right Eye® evaluation system which allows us to assess and monitor visual dysfunction using the latest in eye tracking technology. A Right Eye® Brain Health EyeQ™ evaluation will help us create your individualized therapy program.

A neuro-optometric rehabilitation treatment plan improves acquired visual dysfunction. Some of the exercises used during therapy sessions can include:
