Maino D, Schlange D. The Natural History of the Oculo-Visual Anomalies Associated
with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): A Case Report

This poster was presented at the 2013 College of Optometrist in Vision Development annual meeting in Orland, Fl.

Summary

As with our patient, research has noted that those adults with intellectual disability and a psychiatric illness tend to offer few complaints when taking a case history even though they are often on numerous medications and exhibit frequent visual and systemic anomalies. ......The longitudinal findings seen here suggest that those with TBI may demonstrate variable findings over their lifetimes and require close monitoring of these changes so that appropriate and timely intervention can be provided. It also appears that surgery for strabismus may be of limited intermediate and long term value. Optometric vision therapy appears to have moderate success at least initially. Vision therapy may need to be re-instituted with this now adult patient to help her regain the 2nd degree fusion and stereopsis that TB demonstrated after the initial therapy program some years earlier.....
