Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation for Concussion
Concussions are a common injury that affects millions of people every year. While most people make a full recovery, some experience long-term symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and visual disturbances.
At SIGHT Multispecialty Center in Farmington, CT, we offer comprehensive neuro-optometric rehabilitation services to help individuals with concussion-related visual problems.
What is neuro-optometric rehabilitation?
Concussions can cause a variety of vision-related problems such as double vision, light sensitivity, blurred vision, and difficulty with eye movements. These symptoms can have a significant impact on a person’s well-being and their ability to perform everyday tasks.
Neuro-optometric rehabilitation (NOR) is a type of therapy that focuses on improving visual function and quality of life in patients with concussions or other types of brain injuries. Our doctors work closely with patients to develop a personalized treatment plan that may include exercises, specialized lenses, and other therapeutic techniques.
