Vision Therapy for Concussions: Seeing the Way to Recovery at Idaho Brain and Body

At Idaho Brain and Body Institute, we know how a concussion can shake up your life, not just your brain. Sometimes, a bump on the head can mess with your vision too. That’s why we’re here to talk about something helpful: vision therapy for concussions.

What’s a Concussion?

A concussion is like a bruise on your brain. It can happen from playing sports, falling down, or getting into a car accident. After a concussion, you might feel dizzy, have headaches, or find it hard to think straight. And sometimes, it can make seeing things clearly a bit tricky.

How Can Concussions Affect Your Vision?

After a concussion, you might notice:

  1. Blurry Vision: Things might look fuzzy or not clear.
  2. Trouble Focusing: It can be hard to focus your eyes on something without feeling dizzy or getting a headache.
  3. Sensitive to Light: Bright lights might bother you more than before.

What is Vision Therapy?

Vision therapy is like exercises for your eyes and brain. It helps them work better together after a concussion. It’s kind of like physical therapy, but for your eyes!

How Does Vision Therapy Help After a Concussion?

  1. Strengthens Eye Muscles: Just like lifting weights makes your muscles stronger, vision therapy makes your eye muscles stronger.
  2. Improves Focus: It can help you focus your eyes without feeling dizzy.
  3. Better Eye-Brain Connection: It helps your brain and eyes communicate better, which makes seeing things easier.
