Reclaim Your Vision After a Head Injury

A concussion can bring about many challenges, including visual issues that impact your daily life. Indeed, post-concussion vision problems are more prevalent than one might think, and they can manifest in various ways, including:

  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Double vision
  • Dizziness
  • Light sensitivity 
  • Difficulty maintaining focus
  • Poor depth perception

These vision challenges often extend beyond mere inconveniences; they can signify an underlying, undiagnosed visual problem that has the potential to cast a shadow over your daily life and make reading, learning, and even routine tasks challenging.

If you or someone you know has recently experienced concussion-related vision issues, it might be time to explore the potential benefits of post-concussion vision therapy.

Post-Concussion Vision Therapy: A Path to Recovery

Post-concussion vision therapy is a customized program that focuses on treating vision problems caused by a concussion. This therapy utilizes non-surgical therapeutic techniques personalized to engage your brain through a series of meticulously designed exercises and activities.

For example, if you experience double vision, your therapist will design and tailor exercises that challenge your brain to merge those two images. As time passes, your brain learns to perceive a complete picture, thereby expediting the healing process. 

This proactive approach empowers you to regain visual function and confidence rather than waiting for symptoms to subside on their own.

Very friendly, very efficient, thorough eye exam. Doctor took the time to talk and explain. Everyb... ody works together seamlessly - it is obviously a very well-run office, and it is also obvious that everybody loves working there and being a part of the team. Wife had diabetes, glaucoma, and other conditions. She went here for several years and loved them and the care she got. They took good care of her, and she - and I - couldn't say enough nice things about them.

I had the BEST experience at Advanced Eye Care with Dr. Karalekas! I was in need of an immediate ap... pointment, and found this practice on the VSP website under their premier office listings. The staff was extremely professional and helpful, and booked a same-day appointment for my emergency. Dr. Karalekas was kind, empathetic, and had a wonderful manner with me as a patient. He addressed all my concerns and was able to refer me to a specialist (also the same day!) for a second opinion on my issue. The staff at Advanced Eye Care Associates was wonderful and I'll be switching my routine wellness visits to this office. I was so pleased and happy to have found this practice on a quick search, and am looking forward to receiving my regular care here. Thank you again from a very satisfied NEW patient!!!

I had my first visit with Advanced Eye Care yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. The tech explain... ed each test in detail and what they do even though this wasn't my first eye exam. Doctor Harney took the time to listen to me and explained the test results. He was friendly and professional and I'll be using this practice for my eye exams from now on!
