Neuro Optometric Rehabilitation: Restoring Your Vision After Injury
Are you or a loved one struggling with vision problems after a head injury, concussion, or stroke? If so, you're not alone. Many individuals experience visual changes and challenges following these types of traumas. The good news is that neuro optometric rehabilitation can help restore and improve your vision, enhancing your overall quality of life.
At Forest City Vision, we specialize in neuro optometric rehabilitation, a cutting-edge approach that combines optometry with neuroscience to address vision problems resulting from brain injuries. Our expert team of neuro optometrists and therapists are dedicated to helping you regain visual function and enhance your recovery journey.
Understanding the Importance of Vision in Brain Injury Recovery
Vision is more than just seeing clearly; it encompasses various visual skills and abilities such as eye-tracking, focusing, depth perception, and peripheral awareness. When the brain suffers an injury, whether from a blow to the head, a concussion, or a stroke, it can disrupt the intricate connection between the eyes and the brain.
This disruption often leads to a wide range of visual symptoms, including:
1. Blurred or double vision
2. Sensitivity to light
3. Reading difficulties
4. Poor coordination and balance
5. Difficulty judging distances
6. Problems with eye movements
7. Visual processing challenges
These symptoms can significantly impact your daily life, making it difficult to perform simple tasks, work efficiently, or even enjoy hobbies and recreational activities. That's where neuro optometric rehabilitation comes in.
The Power of Neuro Optometric Rehabilitation
Neuro optometric rehabilitation is a specialized therapy that focuses on retraining and strengthening the visual system. By harnessing the brain's neuroplasticity, we can create new neural pathways and restore visual function. Our goal is to optimize your vision and improve your quality of life.
During your neuro optometric rehabilitation sessions, our expert team will assess your specific visual challenges and develop a tailored treatment plan. The plan may include a combination of the following therapies:
1. Vision Therapy: Through a series of exercises and activities, we'll target and improve specific visual skills such as eye-tracking, focusing, and coordination. This therapy helps retrain your brain to process visual information more effectively.
2. Prism Lenses: Prism lenses can be prescribed to correct visual misalignments and improve binocular vision. They work by redirecting light to the correct area of the retina, enhancing depth perception and reducing double vision.
3. Visual Processing Training: We'll work on enhancing your brain's ability to process and make sense of visual information. This training can improve reading comprehension, visual memory, and visual-spatial skills.
4. Balance and Coordination Exercises: Since vision and balance are closely linked, we'll incorporate exercises to improve your coordination and spatial awareness. These exercises can help reduce dizziness and improve stability.
Our compassionate team will guide you through each step of your rehabilitation journey, offering support and encouragement along the way. We understand the challenges you face, and we're here to provide the expertise and care you need to regain your visual function.
