Vision & Brain Injury. How mTBI/ TBI can affect vision.

Vision & Brain Injury. Vision is the dominant sense in the human species. It is the process of deriving meaning from what we see. It is a complex, learned and developed set of functions, that involve a multitude of skills. The ultimate purpose of which, is to arrive at an appropriate motor and/or cognitive response.

There is an extremely high incidence (>50%) of visual and visual-cognitive disorders in neurologically impaired patients (Traumatic Brain Iinjury, cerebral vascular accidents, stroke, MS, Parkinsons, hemianopia etc), with the majority of individuals recovering from TBI having binocular function difficulties in the form of strabismus, phoria, oculomotor dysfunction, convergence and accommodative abnormalities.
