TREATING BRAIN INJURY WITH VISION THERAPY
Restoring OR Correcting Vision Issues Due to Brain Injury with Vision Therapy
The brain is responsible for 8/10 when it comes to proper vision function. In many cases, traumatic brain injuries will pose a large threat to the individual yet many of these brain injuries’ effect on vision isn’t evaluated while treating a patient. These underlying vision problems as a result of Brain Trauma are silent in the initial stage and will only show symptoms at a later stage
The Connection Between the Eyes and the Brain
Once the light rays are reflected off an object or image, they enter the eye through the cornea, which is the outermost part of the eye.
The light rays are then struck onto the retina, which is a tissue lining at the back of the eye.
The energy in the light rays will then change the light-sensitive nerve cells known as the cones and the rods in the retina, thereby producing an electrical activity that can only be understood by the brain
The information that runs from the eyes to the brain passes via the optic nerve. The rods and the cones form the optic nerve.
The electrical activity, then travels through the nerve fibers, along the optic nerve to the visual cortex of the brain.
The brain will then change the electrical activity into impulses.
The visual cortex will then interpret the sent information and the brain will send a signal or instructions to a specified part of the body for action or to store the information.
The brain is a source of understanding the visual information sent and lack of coordination between these two organs will automatically cause visual, interpretation and understanding issues
The brain also helps an individual in discerning, excellent memory, and intelligence capacity. The functionalities are normally categorized as Cognitive, Sensory or Physical functions
Various Brain Injuries Include
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Mild Closed Head Injury
- Mild Acquired Brain Injury
- Cervical Trauma Syndrome
- Post-Concussive Syndrome
- Post-Traumatic Vision Syndrome
- Cerebral Vascular Accident
- Cerebral Palsy
Signs and Symptoms of Vision Issues due to Brain Injuries
Any brain trauma will interrupt the flow and the processing of the visual information. Some of the symptoms include;
- Blurred Vision
- Problems with eye movements
- Difficulty while reading
- Memory issues
- Sensitive eyes, especially in light
- Double vision
- Headaches during focusing
- Comprehension difficulty
- Visual field loss
- Aching eyes
- Focusing issues
