When the brain is injured, the important flow of information can be disrupted, resulting in vision issues even when the eyes themselves are not damaged.
A neuro-optometric rehabilitation program strengthens the patient's visual skills so that they can perform their regular daily activities and achieve a higher quality of life. This form of rehabilitation is aimed at helping patients who suffer from vision problems resulting from a traumatic brain injury (such as a car accident or stroke).
Neuro-optometrists are trained to diagnose and treat vision problems caused by traumatic brain injury and neurological conditions.
Neuro Optometric Rehabilition is prescribed by a neuro optometrists and may include treatment such as the use of special prism lenses, vision therapy, and syntonics. Syntonics and prisms are usually done in conjunction with an in-office vision therapy regimen.
Dr. Heather McBryar is a fellow of the college of optometrists in vision development and has extensive experience improving the lives and vision of those who have visual disturbance following a traumatic brain injury. Call our office at (423) 710 3965 to schedule an appointment today.
Vision therapy is well worth the response, time and effort. Our Son had a hard time focusing and writing neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time if previously took. His abilities to focus improved greatly and so did his handwriting.
Also, he was better at listening. As a parent, we wanted learning to be fun for our Son, and vision therapy made this possible.

Vision Therapy has given or son the tools he needs to be able to scan and read the written word more effectively and efficiently.
He love working with John and these working sessions give him the motivation to gladly work on his homework assignments.
It amazed us to see the difference in the tracking of his eyes and along a line of it's from the beginning to the end of the treatment.
Dr. McBryar , Kristen and John are all marvelous and we would recommend them to anyone I only wish that we would have found them sooner!
Prior to coming to the institute for vision development my son complained of daily headaches. Therapy has eliminated his headaches completely. I love knowing my son is able to learn pain-free for the rest of his life because of the work that has been done over just a few weeks in this office. He he absolutely loved coming that didn't even feel like going to a doctor or therapy. We are grateful for the relief he was able to find by coming here.
