March is Brain Injury Awareness Month

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month

One of the biggest challenges brain injury survivors face is recovering enough to return to work or school. Brain injuries impact people from all walks and stages of life. Some recover quickly and others take years. Optometric vision therapy can make all the difference.
“Vision problems can interfere with the recovery process. Unfortunately many people who have vision problems resulting from head trauma don’t always realize that part of their symptoms are due to a vision problem. In addition, some people are mistakenly told that nothing can be done to help with their symptoms,” shares Dr. Ida Chung, OD, FCOVD, President of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development , “Our message is that help is possible, something CAN be done.
