VISION
REHABILITATION

We provide vision treatment for those with conditions such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, whiplash, and concussion. We can help patients "get their life back" when there is an underlying vision problem that is preventing recovery. We often prescribe lenses, tints and prisms that will make the rehabilitation process much easier.

For patients who undergo Visual Rehabilitation, the process is similar to those undergoing VT; however, we often have to start with very basic visual skills and work for a limited duration of time (depending upon the patient's stamina). Throughout the process, we have the ability to modify the exercises we use and to adjust any visual-motor integration demands depending on that patient's mobility and comfort.
