MainosMemos contains the latest research and information about eye and vision care of children, developmental disabilities, Traumatic/Acquired Brain Injury and other topics of interest to me (and hopefully you!).
....Approximately 9% of the TBI sample had CI ... Photophobia
with CI was observed in 16.3% and vestibular dysfunction
with CI was observed in 18.5% .
Convergence insufficiency and cranial nerve palsies were common and
yielded prevalence rates of 23.3% and 26.9% (150 of 557),
respectively. Accommodative dysfunction was
common within the nonpresbyopic TBI sample, with a prevalence of 24.4%. Visual field deficits or unilateral visual spatial
inattention/neglect was observed within 29.6% ..... Most TBI patients had
visual acuities of 20/60 or better .....
Comments: All individuals with brain injury must have a comprehensive functional vision assessment to determine the presence of CI and related problems so that treatment can be started. DM
