The inter-disciplinary journal Brain Injury Professionals, one of the largest professional circulation publication on the subject of brain injury and the official publication of the International Brain Injury Association (IBIA) and the North American Brain Injury Society (NABIS), recently published a special issue on Neuro-Optometry.
Four featured articles were authored by optometrists including Derek Tong OD, FAAO FCOVD FNORA, Kenneth Ciuffreda OD PhD FAAO FCOVD-A, Curtis Baxstrom OD MA FAAO FCOVD FNORA, and Barry Tannen OD FAAO FCOVD. Other co-authors of their articles included a Neuropsychologist, a Physiatrist, a Neuro-Ophthalmologist, a Pediatric Ophthalmologist, and six other Optometrists. These scientific articles provided evidence-based overviews of the current symptom assessment, evaluation techniques, and treatment options of these vision disorders common in acquired brain injury, emphasizing how Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation can improve treatment outcomes and quality of life for individuals who suffered physical and cognitive disabilities as a result of acquired brain injury.
