Concussion

concussionWe are proud to offer concussion help for you or your child.

Doctors see various types of concussions, some more serious than others. Though many people don’t think that they need to see us, visual problems can be a sign of a concussion.

Prior to a season, it is important to perform baseline concussion testing for eye movements and eye-hand coordination. Studies have shown that the eye movements and eye-hand coordination can be affected by concussions. It is extremely important that an athlete return to the normal baseline measurements and be cleared by a neurologist before returning to play and risking a second more devastating concussion.

Concussions are extremely common in various sports. After a concussion occurs many different tests can be performed to determine how close the athlete is to the original baseline measurements. Some of these tests include visual attention span, visual working memory, visual processing speed, visual reaction time, visual recognition memory, and many more.

The good news is that a doctor can help address most of the visual conditions that result from a concussion. Our doctors specialize in neuro-optometry, binocular vision, and vision therapy. You can be sure that your vision is in good hands.

If you have any questions about concussions or vision problems caused by them, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (925) 447-3288.
