While vision may not seem to be the most important factor in maintaining balance, the brain relies on visual input to keep your world appearing both stable and leveled. Visual problems related to balance issues or dizziness can be effectively treated with neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy.
Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries are common in high-impact sports —such as football — and can have drastic effects on visual function. Fortunately, neuro-optometrists can help patients regain lost visual abilities and skills.
Though not always evident, a stroke almost inevitably affects vision. Neuro-optometric rehabilitation can treat the resulting vision deficiencies and improve the person’s functionality and quality of life as part of an integrative treatment plan.
