Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries are serious medical issues that may come with a wide variety of side-effects. Concussions are caused by either a direct hit to the head or by an impact such as whiplash. These impacts cause the brain to hit against the inside of the skull causing brain bruising. It is estimated that nearly 4 million concussions occur yearly in the United States. Symptoms may include but are not limited to including double vision, dizziness, nausea, loss of attention when reading, headaches, blurred vision, eyestrain, visual confusion, visual field loss and more.
At ECS Pediatric & Adult in Wexford, therapy is completed one-on-one with a therapist under the guidance of doctors who specialize in Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation. State-of-the-art technology is incorporated into sessions making treatment a hands-on and interactive experience. Our approach works to restore vision back to what it once was prior to the head injury. We incorporate binocular skills, accommodative function, ocular motor skills, and hand-eye coordination into our treatment.
