About the Webinar:
This webinar provides an overview of why vision may be impacted following traumatic brain injury (TBI) along with common ophthalmic terminology. Regarding TBI, evidence will be provided for the occurrence and rehabilitation of vision deficits. An evidence-based, high-yield vision screening for those with TBI will be presented along with the criteria for when and to whom to refer for detailed evaluation and management of the presenting vision deficits. Aspects of vision rehabilitation along with the providers of vision rehabilitation will be outlined. Lastly, the abbreviated underlying neurology, primary associated symptom, and possible treatment options for the typical vision conditions evident following TBI will be discussed.
