Post-brain injury vision care

One of our specialties here at Russell Eyecare & Associates is post-brain injury vision care. Vision dysfunctions are common amount those people with a brain injury. The vision system, the vascular and neural network of the brain, and the dynamics of head trauma all contribute to the high incidence of vision problems after a brain injury. Since activities of daily living involve effective integration of visual information processing and visual motor performance, the person with a brain injury is frequently handicapped as a consequence of disruption in the visual system.
