Vision: Our dominant Sense

Vision is our dominant sense

Most often we think of vision in terms of visual acuity: the ability to see letters on a chart. That is a part of vision, but is not the whole thing. Vision is the process of deriving meaning from what is seen. It is a complex, learned and developed set of functions that involve a multitude of skills. About 80% of what we learn from the world around us is due to perception, learning, cognition and activities are mediated through vision. The ultimate purpose of the vision is then to act on what we see and respond to that either with our muscles or through cognitive response (understanding).

People who have suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury often (more than 50%) have visual and visual-cognitive disorders. The majority of individuals that recover from a traumatic brain injury will have binocular function difficulties in the form of strabismus, phoria, oculomotor dysfunction, convergence and accommodative abnormalities.

The process of vision can be broken down into three general categories;

  1. visual acuity and visual field,
  2. visual motor abilities and
  3. visual perception.

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
