Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation

Neuro-optometric rehabilitation is an individualized treatment regimen for patients with visual deficits as a direct result of physical disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and other neurological insults. Neuro-optometric rehabilitation therapy is a process for the rehabilitation of many disorders that may result from brain injury including:

Acquired strabismus: Abnormal alignment of the eyes.
Diplopia: Double vision.
Binocular dysfunction: When the eyes aren’t aligned with each other.
Eye convergence issues: When it is difficult for your eyes to focus together on something small and close to your eyes like a business card, for example.
Eye accommodation paresis/paralysis: When one or both eyes don’t respond to visual stimuli due to an inability to move.
Oculomotor dysfunction: A range of symptoms that may affect vision after brain injury.
Visual-spatial dysfunction: Difficulty being able to tell where objects are in space.
Visual perceptual and cognitive deficits:  Difficulty understanding visual information.
Traumatic visual acuity loss: Blindness or near blindness.

Abnormal eye movements, such as shaking movements (nystagmus).
Double vision (diplopia).
Eyelid abnormalities, such as a drooping eyelid (ptosis).
Forced eye closure (blepharospasm).
