Reclaim Your Vision After a Head Injury

A concussion can bring about many challenges, including visual issues that impact your daily life. Indeed, post-concussion vision problems are more prevalent than one might think, and they can manifest in various ways, including:

  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Double vision
  • Dizziness
  • Light sensitivity 
  • Difficulty maintaining focus
  • Poor depth perception

These vision challenges often extend beyond mere inconveniences; they can signify an underlying, undiagnosed visual problem that has the potential to cast a shadow over your daily life and make reading, learning, and even routine tasks challenging.

If you or someone you know has recently experienced concussion-related vision issues, it might be time to explore the potential benefits of post-concussion vision therapy.

Post-Concussion Vision Therapy: A Path to Recovery

Post-concussion vision therapy is a customized program that focuses on treating vision problems caused by a concussion. This therapy utilizes non-surgical therapeutic techniques personalized to engage your brain through a series of meticulously designed exercises and activities.

For example, if you experience double vision, your therapist will design and tailor exercises that challenge your brain to merge those two images. As time passes, your brain learns to perceive a complete picture, thereby expediting the healing process. 

This proactive approach empowers you to regain visual function and confidence rather than waiting for symptoms to subside on their own.

I recently finished Vision Therapy and am on my last check in. For me, Vision Therapy was well worth... it. I had a concussion five years ago that compounded additional vision issues onto ones I already had. I was in school at the time and struggled to keep up with my classmates. I had to read the same thing multiple times and longer because I skipped and misread words. My regular eye doctor, Dr. Arnold, highly recommended Vision Therapy to strengthen my eyes and to train my brain to process reading and other tasks properly. He teamed up with Dr. Smith and Vision Therapist Miss Kelsey for my care, so that I had more experienced people helping me through the process. To begin, I did a series of tests with Dr. Smith and Miss Kelsey to determine my starting point. On a weekly basis, I worked with Miss Kelsey through various exercises and did homework throughout the remainder of the week. There were many times when I was frustrated with my progress, especially when I struggled with some exercises. Miss Kelsey was incredibly encouraging and flexible to changing an exercise as needed. Throughout my time in vision therapy and after it, I experienced many improvements, particularly in reading and comprehension. When I had to study for a licensing exam, I could not believe the difference. It was so much easier and less stressful for me. I read quicker and remembered more than I would have before. For the first time in a long time, I felt confident in my learning and comprehension. Thank you Suburban Eye Care for helping me through my vision issues!

I highly recommend the Vision Therapy program! As an adult going through the process it opened up m... y eyes to what was really going on with me. I was having horrible anxiety about driving, going on vacation, going out with friends, even day to day activities were too much for me. It was because my eyes were not working together anymore(Convergence insufficiency & Vertical Heterophoria) and I was seeing double. Dr. Kayla Smith is a fantastic Optometrist who I saw throughout the program. She cares so much for her patients and listens to your concerns. Amanda G was my fantastic Vision Therapist. We worked together for 6 months. She sent me home with exercises to work on and met once a week in office. She's kind, warm and very very encouraging! Together they gave me the tools and exercises to work through vision issues and my anxiety that is being caused by my diagnosed problems. I graduated therapy and couldn't be more happy with the program. I am grateful that I was prescribed Prism glasses to wear when my eyes get fatigued to help with my Vertical Heterophoria(vertical misalignment of my right eye). If you're having vision issues, are anxious about being in a car or even living your normal life seems more anxiety ridden I suggest making an appointment for to see if you are a candidate for Vision Therapy!
