A sharper perspective and renewed focus

​If you or a loved one is experiencing a change in vision after a traumatic brain injury, stroke, or other neurological condition, it may result in a wide variety of symptoms—from a lack of balance or orientation to blurred eyesight. A loss of vision can affect 35 different areas of the brain, which in turn may cause other senses to function poorly, making it especially challenging to carry out activities of daily living. Fortunately, through advancements in optometric care, much can be done to alleviate these symptoms.

The Casa Colina Neuro-Optometry Center is recommended for neurological patients with:

  • Blurred, low, or double vision
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Visual field loss or visual neglect
  • Reading difficulties
  • Frequent headaches
  • Light sensitivity
  • Dizziness while moving or walking
  • Squinting or eye strain
  • Poor eye-hand coordination

Our doctors of optometry treat vision and perceptual problems common to individuals with neurological impairments. They work closely with Casa Colina's therapy staff and referring physicians to monitor each patient's progress and make recommendations to help improve visual processing, sensory input, and balance. The Casa Colina Neuro-Optometry Center team meets regularly to review and discuss patients' care and progress to improve vision.

Team members include:

  • Doctors of optometry who focus on neuro-optometric care and rehabilitation
  • Physiatrists (doctors who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation)
  • Occupational therapists who specialize in neurological treatment with an emphasis on low vision rehabilitation
  • Physical therapists who specialize in vestibular/balance retraining or conditions
  • Other clinicians as needed for the individualized care of the patient

This unique program achieves optimal results through:

  • Specialized testing using state-of-the-art optometric equipment
  • Prescriptions for lenses, prisms, or filters to eliminate or reduce double vision, blurry vision, and visual field loss
  • Individualized occupational therapy to increase visual-perceptual skills
  • Adaptive device training for low vision
  • Customized visual exercise program to improve visual processing
  • Assistive technology to compensate for visual problems
  • Referrals to community resources and education

After a complete assessment and consultation with the patient, our doctor of optometry will provide a plan of care for the patient and treatment will begin. By working together with referring physicians, vision and perceptual deficits resulting from brain injuries or other neurological conditions can often be minimized or completely eliminated.
