Our Inpatient Vision Clinic partners with Neuro-ophthalmologist Dr. Kevin Chauvette to provide evaluation and rehabilitative therapy for patients who have a neurological injury. Neuro-ophthalmologists have unique abilities to evaluate patients from the neurologic, ophthalmologic, and medical standpoints to diagnose and treat a wide variety of problems.
Some common symptoms of acquired brain injury are blurred vision, sensitivity to light, reading difficulties (words appear to move), comprehension difficulty, memory difficulty, double vision, headaches with visual tasks and loss of peripheral vision.
These visual problems can be successfully decreased or eliminated with various treatments, such as: Optometric Vision Therapy, Neuro-optometric Rehabilitation Therapy and corrective lenses, such as prism lenses.
Working with the entire rehabilitation team, a plan is developed with the inpatient to address any associated visual issues that may be impacting a patient’s mobility and safety.
