Concussion Management


Are you or someone you know suffering from the after-effects of head trauma? In the US, over 4 million head injuries are reported each year due to sports, recreation, work related injuries, and auto accidents. Many of these result in a concussion, which is a mild form of traumatic brain injury which does not result in loss of consciousness. A concussion results from the brain hitting the inside of the skull, causing generalized bruising internally. This trauma causes disruptions in the pathways that connect the various senses to the sense of vision. When these pathways are disrupted, the brain is no longer able to integrate the senses together in a way that makes sense, so a collection of visual problems arise as a direct result of it. This is a collection of symptoms called Post Concussion Vision Syndrome. Some of the common symptoms include:

  • Extreme light sensitivity
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Tunneling of vision
  • Intermittent double vision
  • Eye pain and headaches
  • Poor concentration
  • Trouble focusing
  • Constant fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Trouble with balance

Unfortunately, there is a lack of awareness among the general public and even health professionals about Post Concussion Vision Syndrome. Patients with Post Concussion Vision Syndrome often are frustrated that those managing their head trauma are unaware of the cause of their discomfort. We believe that it is important to educate the public about the existence of this problem so that concussion patients can receive the help they need. Most of these symptoms can be effectively treated so that the patient is able to return back to ordinary life. Read here for more information on how we accomplish this.
