Event Navigation

Program Description:

This presentation will discuss the signs and symptoms of vision problems following a stroke and traumatic brain injury.  Double vision, visual field loss, photophobia and balance problems are frequent issues.  The ability of the rehabilitative optometrist to diagnose and manage these issues using lenses, prisms, filters and neuro-vision rehabilitation can be key in helping patients have successful outcomes in their rehabilitation.

Learning Objectives:

  • To learn the main vision issues facing TBI and stroke patients
  • To learn signs and symptoms of common post TBI/CVA issues
  • To learn about the tools at the optometrist’s disposal in treating these vision deficits
  • To learn how to effectively screen for vision deficits
