Abstract

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) can manifest with visual dysfunction including deficits in accommodation, vergence movements, versions, and field of vision as well increased photosensitivity and a decline in ocular and overall health. Patients with incomitant strabismus should be referred to an ophthalmologist for intervention. Patients with mTBI who experience photosensitivity, or deficits in accommodation, versions, vergences, or field of vision may benefit from vision rehabilitation. These therapies may include spectacles with tinting and a variety of prism combinations. Patients with chronic visual dysfunction following mTBI may benefit from occupational, vestibular, cognitive, and other forms of physical therapy.
