Vision Therapy for
Concussion & Traumatic
Brain Injury

“If you’ve JUST had a traumatic brain injury or concussion, please go to your nearest hospital, or see your doctor as soon as possible.”

A concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI) is painful the moment it occurs, but its effects can also continue after the initial impact and cause symptoms that affect your vision, ranging from mild to severe. Don’t just live with the dizziness, lack of focus, and other symptoms that can occur after your injury — let our team of professionals at Sightwork help you get your life back through better use of your sight.

How Has Your Vision Changed Since a Concussion or TBI?

How Has Your Vision Changed Since a Concussion or TBI?

When you get a concussion or a TBI, it can affect your vision due to the close relationship between the brain and sight. Your eyes pick up visual cues, like the location of objects as you move, and your brain processes them. Experiencing a brain injury or concussion can disrupt this delicate signal reading. This can cause blurry vision, lack of spatial awareness, light sensitivity, and other troubling symptoms related to these skills.

Symptoms of TBI / Concussion

Post-concussion and TBI symptoms can change your vision, causing other symptoms like headaches and nausea due to the extra work your brain is doing as it tries to accurately process what you see.

Some common vision-related symptoms of these injuries are:

  • Blurred or double vision
  • Light sensitivity
  • Difficulty with eye movements and tracking
  • Eye pain and eye strain
  • Inability to focus
  • Poor memory or comprehension
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness and vertigo
  • Nausea

How Can These Symptoms Affect my Day-to-Day Life?

Having disorienting and painful symptoms every day can make accomplishing tasks — like walking, driving, and reading — more difficult, which can have a major impact on you. The inability to participate in things you enjoy or get from one place to another with ease not only affects your productivity, but also lowers your quality of life.

How Can Vision Therapy Help Post-Concussion or TBI?

How Can Vision Therapy Help Post-Concussion or TBI?

After a TBI or concussion, treatment for your sight is crucial, especially when your symptoms are serious enough to interfere with performing day-to-day-activities. Our vision therapists use a variety of techniques and tools, like prism glasses, to engage and challenge your eyes in different ways. These exercises build up your eyes’ ability to work as a team along with other parts of your body to improve coordination.

We also utilize syntonic photo therapy — or Syntonics — which exposes your eyes to light with a special device, helping you better orient yourself, strengthen your peripheral vision, and balance your fight or flight response to lower stress. Each of our therapeutic methods are important to your holistic care, and will improve your physical stability, make you feel less dizzy, ease eye strain, and much more.

Why Trust Sightwork for Vision Therapy?

At Sightwork, we work diligently as your partner to help you return to the comfortable, active, and happy person you’re meant to be. By combining our Functional Vision Evaluation, custom treatment plan, and individualized therapy, we can relieve your vision related TBI or concussion symptoms.

We provide in-office and at-home Syntonics, eye training exercises, and personalized activities using advanced technology that are proven to benefit those with brain injuries. As part of our attentive care, we’ll adjust your treatment as you progress through each session to ensure you’re always making new strides and building better vision.

Success Stories

“This experience has been life changing. Seeing my vision improve significantly in just a matter of 8 weeks of therapy has led to a confidence boost as well as brought on a sense of positivity in my attitude overall. Other doctors I had previously visited had let me to believe my eyes couldn’t improve and would continue to deteriorate over time. Sightwork’s vision therapy program has proved all of them wrong.”

This was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Through 6 months of vision therapy, my amazing therapist, Lauren, and doctor, Dr. Farnham, I was given the skills and strength needed to bring my vision to a place it had never been before. This took away my headaches, improved my depth perception, my reading speed went up 5 grade levels, and it helped me navigate vision during my daily life with ease. I don’t have words to describe how grateful l am! My family calls them miracle workers, and I would have to agree.

My daughter is currently in 4th grade and had never read above a 1st grade level. We had worked with her 1 on 1 ourselves, gotten her tutoring, worked with her teachers, and were in the process of trying see if she had dyslexia. Nothing seemed to work. I took her to the eye dr for something else and they discovered she had accommodative insufficiency, or something like that, and we were told she needed eye therapy. I almost cried bc I was so happy to finally have answers as to why my very bright daughter could not read. Fast forward to now…we are about 1/3 of the way thru therapy and we have seen so much improvement! Even her teachers have remarked on how much she has improved. Her confidence as well as her abilities… I wish there was more awareness of this problem since it was the first I had ever heard of it, and never considered it could be something so “simple”.Now as for my review of the place itself…it’s gorgeous. Everything is set up so well, very clean, and the staff is SOOO friendly and accommodating. We will miss Ashley! But I know we are in good hands. Well worth every penny. Thanks so much!

I found Sightwork after experiencing a brain injury in a car accident. When I started therapy, I was unable to drive, go to stores, use screens, or do much of anything. I was really struggling with my vision due to the brain injury. Everybody at Sightwork was so friendly, patient, and honest about the fact that results would take some time and effort on my part. What I found is that by committing myself to doing the exercises as many days of each week that they suggested I do them and pushing through some of the discomfort I experienced (some discomfort is to be expected in the process), that results did come and over the six months of therapy I regained my ability to drive, I can now go out more, and I’m getting my life back as it was before the accident. I highly recommend Sightwork to anybody who needs them. If you do the work, you will definitely see results. Thank you Cara and Dr. Farnham!
