Neuro optometry is a process designed to restore visual skills and abilities that have been impaired, either by an acquired brain injury or other neuro-related disability. Specifically, this type of rehabilitation addresses the underlying conditions that can cause symptoms such as double vision, blurred vision, headaches, eye strain, visual fatigue, difficulty tracking, balance dysfunction and visual processing difficulties.
When administered by an experienced professional, neuro optometry can provide a path to clear, comfortable vision. Rather than training a patient to simply compensate and live with the problem, neuro optometry provides noticeable, sustainable improvements and, in many cases, permanent recovery.
Just as an individual who has suffered an injury elsewhere on the body or faces the challenges of a physical disability may benefit greatly from physical therapy, neuro optometry can help patients overcome visual deficits that are a direct result of disabilities, injuries to the brain and other neurological insults.
Some of the conditions that can be managed or overcome through neuro optometry include:
Candidates for neuro optometry include, but are not limited to:
Vision changes that occur due to trauma are often remarkably complex, which is why it’s critical that your vision rehabilitation is overseen and carried out by a professional who is experienced in the realm of neuro-optometry.
