Austin, TX, June 30, 2017 - 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, says Dr. Denise Smith.

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, she says. Once these problems are diagnosed a personalized vision therapy schedule can be created.

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 with vision therapy.

Dr. Smith says that seeking vision care in Austin following a traumatic brain injury should be one of the many ways patients seek to treat 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.

Austin Vision Therapy Center diagnoses and treats a variety of vision problems. They believe that greater visual success can lead to an overall better life. To schedule an appointment or find answers to any concerns that one may have with vision or that of a loved one, call (512)351-7288.
