I recently published a case report in the peer-reviewed journal Optometry and Vision Development about a young man who suffered a head injury from a car accident 11 years ago. He reported symptoms of chronic asthenopia, headaches, eye pain which developed after the accident. Despite routine eye exams for glasses, he continued to struggle with these symptoms. When I performed a neuro-optometric vision examination I found oculomotor, binocular, and accommodative dysfunctions which were very treatable with optometric vision therapy. I prescribed a program of vision therapy to be performed in addition to his physical therapy program. He started vision therapy immediately and found that it provided significant relief from his vision symptoms.
