Body of Abstract: Visual processing problems are very common following brain injury. Hidden visual problems are often overlooked and when not treated they can impair or lengthen rehabilitation success. This course will assist you in diagnosing and understanding treatment for patients with visual deficits following brain injury. How to test for the specific visual deficits accompanying brain injury, concussion, stroke and trauma will be covered along with treatment protocols including lenses, prisms, filters, and neuro optometric vision rehabilitation. Dynamic case presentation will give you the opportunity to experience testing and treatment used to help more brain injury patients recover successfully.
