Neuro vision rehabilitation is a process designed to restore visual skills and abilities that have been impaired, either by an acquired brain injury or other neuro-related disability. Specifically, this type of rehabilitation addresses the underlying conditions that can cause symptoms such as double vision, blurred vision, headaches, visual fatigue, eyestrain, difficulty tracking, balance dysfunction and challenges with visual processing.
When administered by an experienced neuro-optometric professional, vision rehabilitation can provide a path to clear, comfortable vision. Rather than training a patient to simply compensate and live with the problem, neuro vision rehabilitation provides noticeable, sustainable improvements and, in many cases, permanent recovery.
Just as an individual who has suffered an injury elsewhere on the body or faces the challenges of a physical disability may benefit greatly from physical therapy, vision rehabilitation can help patients overcome visual deficits that are a direct result of disabilities, injuries to the brain and other neurological insults.
