The Austin Vision Therapy Center, a clinic in Austin, TX, has developed a number of unique tools and processes to help people achieve better vision and, thereby, a higher quality of life. They have recently released new research through the Center for Vision Development, which shows the positive link between vision therapy and rehabilitation from brain injury. More details are available at

Dr. Denise Smith, founder and clinical director of Austin Vision Therapy Center, says: "Brain injuries often require extensive rehab simply to relearn skills that once seemed second nature. Occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy are common parts of rehab but a visit to an Austin eye care specialist for vision therapy could also do a lot of good."

Brain injuries can damage one's peripheral vision, tracking skills, and much more. An appointment at an Austin vision center can diagnose and treat problems including blind spots and the inability to track effectively. Once these problems are diagnosed, a personalized vision therapy schedule can be established. People are encouraged to visit for further information.

Some problems that manifest after a brain injury could be caused by vision problems even though at first glance they may seem to have a different cause. One such problem is walking. People with vision problems have an uneven or uncertain gait that can be addressed not only through physical therapy, but also by vision therapy.

Seeking vision care in Austin following a traumatic brain injury should be one of the many ways patients can seek treatment for their problems and get their life back to the way it was before the injury. Having a fully functional vision system is vital for anyone looking to have a high quality of life.

As shown on, the center diagnoses and treats a variety of vision problems. Greater visual success can lead to an overall better life. Austin Vision Therapy Center is a skilled team of doctors and professionals who aim to help their patients improve their life by addressing any vision problems they may have. The clinic believes that every problem has a solution and provides patients with options they may not have even known existed by implementing a comprehensive approach to vision care and vision therapy.
