Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation

Have You Had a Concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury?

Do you experience blurry or double vision? Struggle with maintaining attention, reading, driving, or using a computer? Various vision problems can arise following a traumatic brain injury (TBI), concussion, or stroke. Fortunately, a neuro-optometrist can treat these and other vision issues resulting from such events.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Since vision processing involves more areas of the brain than any other system, traumatic brain injuries frequently lead to vision problems. Studies show that 90% of TBI patients experience some form of vision disruption due to interrupted communication between the eyes and the brain.

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) - Concussions

Although considered mild, concussions are still brain injuries that can cause persistent, debilitating symptoms and alter brain function. Children and teens are most affected, with over 60% experiencing visual symptoms. Older individuals are also susceptible to concussions. If you or a family member has sustained a concussion or whiplash from a head injury, it is crucial to get your eyes examined promptly.


A stroke, or cerebrovascular accident (CVA), occurs when blood supply to part of the brain is suddenly interrupted, or a blood vessel in the brain bursts, causing bleeding around brain cells. Stroke-related ocular changes can affect sensory (visual acuity and field), motor (extraocular muscle motility), and perceptual functions.

Neuro-Optometry: The Intersection of Neurology and Optometry

Neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy is a customized treatment program designed for patients with visual deficits resulting from stroke, traumatic brain injury, concussion, or neurological conditions. Utilizing the latest methods in neuro-plasticity and vision function, this therapy helps patients develop or regain essential visual skills necessary for learning and daily activities.

Undiagnosed vision conditions or those resulting from traumatic brain injury or neurological disease can lead to:

  • Double vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye-teaming and eye-tracking problems
  • Visual field loss
  • Extreme sensitivity to light (photophobia)
  • Eye focusing problems

Neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy, as part of an interdisciplinary approach, targets the underlying causes of these symptoms.

If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms related to a neurological disease, trauma, or condition, visit Dr. Cliff Hughes for a comprehensive eye exam and neuro-optometric solutions.
