If you are seeing patients with brain injury, vision should be a part of the rehabilitation. The majority of the hardwiring of the brain involves the visual pathway, so it is very common to experience a visual problem after a brain injury or concussion. In fact, over 50% of patients with neurological impairments exhibit visual and visual-cognitive disorders. This number is near 90% for those who are recovering from a concussion. If visual deficits do exist, they can result in significant difficulty with reading, mobility, and balance, which can prevent your clients from returning to their baseline level of function and independence. Fortunately, neuroplasticity of the visual system exists, and after learning about basic neuro-anatomy, you will be able to accommodate the needs of these patients more effectively.
