Visual Changes in Post-Concussion Syndrome and Mild TBI

Presentation to Eye Doctors on Concussion and Brain Injury
Dr. Roth presented a 2 hour lecture on Concussion and Brain Injury to fellow eye doctors at the Monmouth-Ocean County Optometric Society. He discussed neuroanatomy (brain structure) and how pervasive vision is throughout the brain. He talked about the effects within the brain that occurs after a brain injury, the visual problems that ensue (double vision, poor focus, lack of concentration, anger, depression) and how that impacts how the individual’s function. Is there any wonder that someone who has suffered a brain injury has vision problems that go far beyond eyeglass issues?
