Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation through Vision Therapy

Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation through Vision Therapy

Neuro-Optometrists have special training and clinical experience in this area and are able to help those who have vision problems related to brain injury. Neuro-Optometrists understand how specific visual dysfunctions relate the to patient's symptoms and performance. They can provide solutions to these problems so that the entire rehabilitation program (OT, PT, Speech, etc.) is then more effective.

The evaluation of the patient with brain injury may include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Comprehensive eye and vision examination
  • Extended sensorimotor evaluation
  • Higher cerebral function assessment of visual information processing
  • Low vision evaluation
  • Extended visual field evaluation
  • Electrodiagnostic testing

Optometric management of the patient with brain injury may include the following:

  • Treatment of ocular disease or injury either directly or by comanagement with other healthcare professionals
  • Treatment of the visual dysfunction with lenses, prisms, occlusion, and optometric vision therapy
  • Counselling and education of patient, family, or caregiver about the patient's visual problems, functional implications, goals, prognosis, and management options
  • Consultation with other professionals involved in the rehabilitation and health care of the patient.

Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.

Family Eye Care Team
