Neuro-Optometry

Neuro-Optometry

Neuro-optometry is a subfield of optometry that evaluates patients with visual complaints, light sensitivity, and double vision secondary to acquired brain injury (concussion, trauma, stroke, etc) and/or neurological disorders (Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, lyme disease, etc). A neuro-optometric examination is a comprehensive evaluation of all of the aspects of vision that may be affected by damage to the eyes and central nervous system. This includes evaluation of how the eyes see (visual acuity, ocular health), how the eyes work together and track as a team (eye turns/oculomotor), how the eyes function with head/body movement (vestibular-oculomotor), and how the brain interprets what the eyes see (visual processing). Concussion Care Centre of Virginia offers neuro-optometric examinations, post-concussion vision therapy, double vision examinations, neurological visual field loss evaluations, and visual processing testing.
