Why Traumatic brain injuries affect vision and cause Vision Problems

Hi, I'm Dr. Moshe Roth. I practice Family Eye Care in old bridge, New Jersey, a traumatic brain injury breaks the visual system, and self-esteem. A traumatic brain injury or a TBI often breaks the vital communication between the brain and the visual system. And this brings on disabling symptoms. People often have symptoms of blurred vision or double vision or difficulty breathing and dizziness individuals may then feel anxious or depressed and have low self-esteem.

When somebody suffers a brain injury due to a car crash in caution or a stroke, they may no longer be able to do things that they were able to do before. They may have recurrent headaches that require the individual to take breaks frequently when working or studying or reading, they may have chronic dizziness. And then that can lead to difficulty in driving or making the individual dependent on others.

A child that has suffered a TBI or concussion may not be able to play group sports or activities. They may then feel alone or different.

That's where we come in.

If you have a loved one, that's suffered even a mild traumatic brain injury, please feel free to visit our office. We can often help.

We begin with a comprehensive eye examination and a functional vision evaluation to determine what specific course of neuro optometric rehabilitation  we will need to use in order to help you.

Brain injury can cause double vision or eye tracking problems, reading a book or patching a ball can then become a struggle, extremely frustrating. That then can lead someone with suffered a brain injury to become sad, have lower self-esteem or to become depressed, be alert for these signs, social withdrawal, persistent feelings of sadness, lack of interest in personal hygiene or appearance negative self-talk like I can't, I can't, lack of motivation being irritable or moody, reduced appetite or lack of appetite or lack of appetite. And most of all, frustration in the next video, I'm going to talk about how they neuro optometrist can help.
