Visual dysfunctions and symptoms are commonly experienced after even mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) despite excellent visual acuity. All individuals who have experienced a TBI/concussion should be screened for vision symptoms and visual dysfunction. A TBI-specific eye examination is necessary to identify the visual sequelae of TBI and address any vision/ocular issues that may be contributing to other post-TBI complaints. A vision rehabilitation plan that includes vision therapy can improve visual dysfunction secondary to TBI. Combining office-based and home-based vision therapy training will maximize visual potential and functional results.
