Restoring Your Visual Comfort
Eye health is only part of comfortable vision. Your eyes and brain need to work together. So when there’s a problem with the eye-brain connection, or your left and right eyes send confusing signals, it can impair vision.
People of all ages can experience vision problems because of injuries or neurological health conditions. These problems can range from blurred vision, reduced concentration, difficulties reading or using a computer—issues that interfere with everyday activities.
Fortunately, thanks to neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to adapt and change—training your vision can help improve vision at any age. Neuro optometric rehabilitation can help patients develop or regain essential visual skills. Visit Advanced Eye Center for a consultation to see how we can help restore your visual comfort.
What is Neuro Optometric Rehabilitation?
Neuro optometric rehabilitation is a form of vision therapy practiced by neuro optometrists—eye doctors who have received additional training and certification in managing neurological eye problems. Like vision therapy, various tools, exercises, and techniques help develop or train visual abilities.
Neuro optometrists can help improve or resolve vision problems caused by traumatic brain injuries (TBI), neurological disease, or undiagnosed vision conditions. An individualized treatment plan is created to make everyday vision more comfortable.
Some vision problems neuro optometric rehabilitation can help with include the following:
- Accommodative dysfunction (eye focusing)
- Balance problems & spatial disorientation
- Double or blurred vision
- Eye teaming, tracking, & movement control
- Severe light sensitivity
- Visual field loss
