Brain Injury

Acquired brain injury, which includes concussion, traumatic brain injury, stroke and neuro-degenerative conditions, can have several effects on the visual system. These conditions include:

  • Accommodative dysfunction (impaired eye focusing)
  • Binocular vision dysfunction (impaired eye teaming, including nerve palsy)
  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Oculomotor dysfunction (impaired eye movement or tracking)
  • Pupil anomalies
  • Ptosis (sagging or drooping eye lid)
  • Strabismus (eye turn, wandering eye, crossed eye)
  • Visual field loss (peripheral vision or ‘side vision’ loss)
  • Visual attention neglect (inability to attend to information on one side of the body)
  • Visual perceptual deficits or visual agnosia – including visual-spatial deficits
  • Prolonged visual processing speed
  • Impaired visual working memory
  • other visual processing deficiencies

If you have experienced a brain injury and are experiencing any visual symptoms, especially if these symptoms are persisting longer than 10 weeks, call Advance Vision Therapy to book an assessment. Early intervention with vision therapy following injury will increase the chances of regaining lost function and improving your quality of life.
