Summary:

Visual changes after a brain injury can pose problems that may be misunderstood as cognitive or emotional in nature. OTs working with clients who are recovering from TBI should be prepared to consider the impact of visual irregularities on everyday activities of daily living, and to participate in developing an interdisciplinary plan of care related to neurologically based visual impairments. 

Objectives:

The objective of this continuing education program is to provide OTs with information regarding vision deficits related to traumatic brain injury and the assessment of vision skills post-TBI, to develop a plan of care, and to foster an interdisciplinary approach to treatment of neurological vision deficits. After you study the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify vision deficits related to TBI.
  • Explain and demonstrate the importance of vision screening.
  • Describe the efficacy of an interdisciplinary approach to vision rehabilitation.
