Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are defined as a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury. Everyone is at risk for a TBI, especially children and older adults.

Most common causes of TBIs include:

  • motor vehicle accidents

  • sports-related head injuries

  • falls (most commonly among the elderly)

 

Following a TBI, there is often an interruption in communication between the eyes and the brain. These patients may suffer from a variety of symptoms, including but not limited to:

  • blurred vision

  • sensitivity to light

  • reading difficulty

  • headaches with visual tasks

  • reduction or loss of visual field

  • difficulties with eye movements

 

Individuals who have suffered a head injury and who are experiencing visual symptoms can benefit from a binocular vision assessment and subsequent treatment.
