Vision Therapy for Concussion Care at Nova Vision Center

Many people who have experienced a concussion or other forms of traumatic brain injuries often experience persistent problems with their vision and other painful symptoms. These symptoms are called Post Trauma Vision Syndrome (PTVS).

While the eyes may technically be healthy, they are no longer communicating properly with the brain. The eyes are controlled by the brain, so if the brain has been injured because of concussion, the visual system can be significantly impacted.

What are the Symptoms of Post Trauma Vision Syndrome?

People who have sustained brain injuries, including concussion, may have an undiagnosed vision condition which results in the following symptoms:

  • Double vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye-teaming and eye-tracking problems
  • Visual field loss
  • Extreme sensitivity to light (photophobia)
  • Eye focusing problems

Other symptoms may include experiencing headaches and migraines, dizziness, trouble reading, nausea, difficulties with coordination and balance, and poor depth perception.
