NEURO-OPTOMETRIC REHABILITATION OF BRAIN INJURY

 

WHAT IS A CONCUSSION/ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY?

Concussion/Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is an all-encompassing term for damage to the brain that occurs after birth. Typically this damage is sudden, non-progressive, non-degenerative, and leads to abnormalities in neurological processing. These neurological changes can adversely affect the way a person functions in their activities of daily living by affecting the thought process, emotional behavior, speech ability, motor function and the visual system.  Visual problems include but are not limited to:

  • Eye tracking problems
  • Eye teaming problems
  • Eye focusing problems
  • Visual field problems
  • Visual information processing problems


An ABI can be from an external traumatic injury (where the brain encountered physical trauma from such incidents as a motor vehicle or bicycle accident, a fall, an assault, contact sports, or neuro-surgery) or it can be from an internal cause (stroke, aneurysm, brain tumor, viral infection, inflammation, vestibular dysfunction or post-surgical complications).


WHO SHOULD EVALUATE MY VISION PROBLEM?

Optometrists who have specialized training in diagnosing and managing problems with binocular vision and provide vision rehabilitation (vision therapy) are your best choice.  Treatment options include special glasses (that include a specific prescription, prisms, tints, and/or coatings) and/or in-office vision therapy.

Dr. Rayman has advanced training in both binocular vision problems and neuro-optometric rehabilitation.  He and his therapy team are well suited to diagnose and treat your vision problems due to ABI.
